In 7 ways that students could enhance  their study habits during COVID-19 which serves as a guide from the University of Michigan through the Center for Academic Innovation.

Before knowing the study habits, the guide advises students to be patient towards themselves, peers and instructors during this challenging time.

  1. STAY ORGANIZED

The students will be always overwhelmed when the assignments and projects are given and that too doing independently. They have to keep track of important dates for submission of assignments, evaluation  and other activities like noting the  links to lectures, office hours for handy retrieval  for each class in a spreadsheet.

  1. DON’T MULITITASK

          Doing more work independently makes the students get distracted or sidetracked. For academic tasks, advise the students to focus on one thing at a time and providing breaks between the tasks will improve focus on work.

  1. MAKE THE MOST OF VIDEO LECTURES

         The video lectures help the  student to cope up with the speed of learning and retaining the material. Providing a chat feature and a discussion forum helps the students to interact with one another.

        4. SET A SCHEDULE

        Setting a schedule can help students develop structure for their daily activities. A weekly or daily calendar or even a spreadsheet can help students organize their study and personal time.

       5. SWAP-OUT STRATEGIES

If a student previously preferred to study in a library or coffee shop, he or she might want to try recreating that environment in a dorm room. Phone-based or virtual study sessions can help students who like to study in groups

  1. Collaborate remotely

 Ask students to set up meetings with a clear objective or purpose and take notes in a shared document. Keeping videos open and seeing teammates can help students stay connected to one another. 

  1. STAY CONNECTED TO OTHERS

Let students know to call or do video chats with friends and family. Use hangouts apps to connect with classmates. And encourage students to visit instructors’ during virtual office hours, if necessary.
