Tips for Getting Started and Staying Focused

Stay connected with your professor. Check Canvas and your Tulane email regularly for updates on your course. Professors are offering online office hours - take advantage of them to connect, provide feedback and ask questions about the course material.

Get your study space set up and make it special- you will be spending a lot of time there! Here are some tips on creating an ideal study space for online learning.

Get connected with your friends and classmates. Organize some study sessions or schedule a virtual brunch through Facetime, Zoom or Google Hangout to catch up. We need to stay connected to stay positive and motivated.

Do whatever you do to manage stress. Be prepared to self-isolate and self-monitor. Let go of what you can't control and focus on the positive people and experiences in your life right now. Also, try to laugh!

Plan your time and set goals. Use the success resources available to you such as:
