10 Ways to Survive E-Learning Days

10 Ways to Survive E-Learning Days

  1. The first way to survive during E-learning is to, after finding the motivation to do something, set break times for yourself. Depending on the amount of work that needs to get done and when you start, five to ten minute break times to recuperate some brain cells should be fine.
  2. DO NOT stress out about workloads. Take some time to realize that, even if you have a lot of work, you have a larger amount of time to finish the work. Take it one piece of work at a time.
  3. Email teachers with questions. If you have questions, which is very typical on E-Learning days, email your teacher. Most students do not like to do this but if your question gets answered it may be able to help jump-start your assignment.
  4. Make a list. If you write down a list of all the assignments you need to do and cross them off of the list as you go along, it is easier to be motivated. As you go along the list will get shorter and you’ll feel more motivated to get to the end.
  5. If you do not have an internet connection get ahold of a friend from the same class. They can send you the instructions. This way, if the assignment does not involve the internet, you can get the work done before the next day. It’s a good way to avoid having to struggle with the E-Learning work and homework at the same time.
  6. Take it assignment by assignment. It’ll be difficult to focus on the assignment if you’re trying to juggle multiple pieces of work at the same time. Do one assignment at a time instead of making one large assignment out of smaller ones. It’ll put too much stress on you.
  7. Avoid as many distractions as possible. If you are constantly distracted a ten minute assignment may seem to drag on forever.
  8. Depending on how you learn (auditory, visual, or tactile), make the assignments as interesting as possible. Since you’ll be home read out loud, draw a picture, or write notes. It’ll help you think through the assignment better and focus.
  9. Give yourself a small reward after each assignment is completed; whatever is a reward to you, television time, a short nap, a snack, etc.
  10. Relax! When you’re done relax. Depending on how long the work took you have plenty of time to spend sitting back and relaxing.
