Create a schedule: GIS Online courses are designed using Quality Matters Program course design principles to ensure students can quickly identify the learning objectives, assignments and deliverables. Be prepared to review materials early and plan out several two-to-three hour time blocks to log in and complete weekly assignments. Creating a schedule helps students stay on track.
MyUWFDesktop for example). Set course notifications in eLearning to receive notifications of changes, updates and deadlines to a personal email account.
Have a consistent workspace: GIS Online courses may require books, printouts, draft papers, and other loose items. Keep all of these items together, in one place. If not a desk or file cabinet, perhaps some folders in a milk crate? Have some “Plan B” locations in mind in case the normal workspace is somehow compromised or is no longer conducive to learning.
