1. Be realistic about your expectations
Be enrolling in an online class, you need to be realistic about your ability to juggle work, family, and study. Don’t start a class if you don’t have enough time. The best thing with online education is that it provides room for flexibility and convenience. You don’t have to be always logging into your classes every day. You can be attending your classes during weekends and holidays. All that you need is to make sure that you have dedicated enough time to studying and finishing your assignments.
Before starting your online course, you also need to strengthen your computer skills especially if you are not confident with yourself. You should narrow down to the skills that you need to know to be able to attend your virtual classes and complete your assignment on time.
2. Read the requirements
Before enrolling in an online class, you first need to carefully read all the class and syllabus requirements. Before enrolling in an online degree course, make sure to complete all the pre-requisites for the course. You should also make sure that you purchase or borrow all the course materials that you need before the start of your classes.
3. Meet all technical requirements
Many online courses require students to have a laptop with the most up to date operating system and enough hard drive memory space. Your laptop must also support internet connection. If you don’t meet the requirements, you should first work on them before enrolling in an online course. Apart from that, you should also consider honing your computer skills by enrolling in a brief computer literacy class before the start of your course.
4. Let your employer know that you are taking classes
If you are working, whether full time or part-time, you should let your employer know that you are planning to take an online course. Doing this will help them understand your time restrictions. Your employer might offer you a flexible work schedule that will help you avoid conflicts when trying to juggle work, family, and study.
5. Set up a dedicated study space
Before the start of your classes, set up a place where you will be able to study with fewer or no distractions. If you are planning to be doing your classwork at home, look for a place where your family members or roommates will not distract you.
If you can’t manage to study from your home, cafes and coffee shops that have internet access are a great option. All that you need is to talk with the owner or management to see whether they can allow you to occupy a table for an extended amount of time.
If you are looking for a quiet environment outside your home, libraries are the best option. If you don’t have a laptop, you can check whether the nearby libraries have desktop computers for use.
