Tips for Online University Learning – BUnow


With the majority of high schools and colleges moving to online classes, many students will be studying online from home. This is new to many students, parents and even instructors. This can create a lot of uncertainty and anxiety when thinking about how your classes, your job, and your life will change in the future. Here are some tips to help you prepare for the remaining two months of the semester.


Such drastic changes can be overwhelming, but it’s important to remember that almost everyone is equally uncertain about the future. Your teachers have to revise, modify and create an entirely new program in a few days and learn all the tools online. Your parents, or the person you live with, will have to get used to you being at home. You also have to adapt and be patient because it’s a big change for everyone in a short time.

self discipline

Try to keep your life as close to your university life as possible. Waking up, doing homework, eating and doing things at the same time. Do your homework before anything else, so you don’t get left behind. If you can still talk to your teacher via zoom or skype, you should. It makes her feel like she’s in the classroom rather than at home.

Avoid socializing with people face-to-face as much as possible. The reason you are home is to avoid getting sick. Wash your hands, stay home and be careful of others around you.


Communication between the university and the students is crucial in times like these. Reading your emails, checking BOLT, and reading the revised program are must-do tasks. Also, if you have any questions, be sure to email or schedule an online meeting with your instructor. It is important that you check when your homework is due and which is cancelled. Some projects can only be done on campus.

stay motivated

I hope you are studying something you are passionate about. It’s much easier to motivate yourself when you have to get up at a certain time and be in class. Being around people who have similar interests and doing hands-on work is much more interesting. Unfortunately, there are majors and classes that have to cancel cool projects, videos, art and lab assignments and become more of a reading and reading based class, which is a bummer. However, your major and courses remain the same and you should still be interested in learning the material. Being passionate about the material will help you engage more with your work.

Do your best

It can be overwhelming to follow the news of the virus while avoiding getting sick. It’s hard to focus on school when real life is interrupted. Many people are out of work right now, and it can be hard to focus on school when you’re in an unstable position. Attending classroom Zoom sessions on your phone or laptop, completing discussion forums and assignments on time, and making the most of situations will help you succeed in almost any online course.
