by blogemu

College life can be very challenging as we attempt to transition from face-to-face to online classes. It can be especially difficult to have a structured schedule with everything being online.


Here are some scheduling tips for taking online courses at EMU:


1)Make sure your sleeping and eating patterns are the same.


-Set a timer or an alarm for when it’s time for you to go to bed.


-Create a time frame where you will eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


*Eat healthy snacks and drink water in between classes and virtual meetings


2) Use a planner for writing down homework and extracurricular activities..


*Write your classes in order from Monday-Friday

Highlight important dates (finals, essays, and tests)


3) Find free time between your classes and job scheduling


-Any free time between your classes, eat or work on homework, etc.


4) Remember to Relax!

-Make sure you take breaks


-Recharge your brain by reading your preferred books or magazines


Take time for yourself. Feel free to take a break away from your phone, laptop, and other electronics.
