When studying via online classes, most students feel they are not able to give their best efforts despite following a planned schedule.
If you too feel the same, then this blog will definitely answer all your doubts and by the end of it you will be able to focus on your studies with increased focus and concentration. Helping you with some very important do’s and don’ts related to studies through digital class, Sudarshan Guha, Inorganic chemistry faculty, ALLEN Career Institute has shared some very vital points.
To begin with, let’s have a look at the Do’s
- Sit in the right posture
Your sitting posture matters a lot. When studying, your focus needs to be intact and therefore, it’s vital that you sit straight with your spine erect. This position brings your body in alert mode which further facilitates smooth learning and grasping of the things you study.
- Be consistent
Another important thing that you have to take care of is consistency. When watching the video lectures, follow a consistent practice. Dedicate time to a video and ensure that you complete watching it in the designated time.
- Keep distractions away
When studying through video lectures, keep all possible distractions away whether it is about going out to drink water, having some snacks in between or for that matter watching any entertainment video. All this will deviate you from studies. Keep your focus intact and first make it a point to finish the video lecture of the subject that you’ve started. You will have to practice self-control in order to maintain your focus and concentration.
- Follow the time-table religiously
It goes without saying that you need to follow the time-table religiously. This will help you in the long run and improve your preparation strategically. Prepare the time-table to adjust every activity of yours throughout the day, right from waking up in the morning to sleeping at night, you have to do everything timely. Even your preparation should be time bound so that you don’t waste a single minute of the day. This will ensure maximum productivity in terms to learning.
- Consider video lectures as classroom training
You may not be studying in a classroom, but with ALLEN Digital Classes, your study room itself has become your classroom now. So, treat it as one. The discipline with which you sit in a classroom, the same should be followed in the digital class too as only then you will be able to achieve your goals.
- Take some gap between two lectures
It is advisable to take a small gap between two video lectures. Utilize the time to relax and prepare for the next lecture. This will ensure that you stay more focused and refreshed for the next class. Also, after finishing a video lecture, if you somehow don’t want to watch the next lecture immediately; then you can use that time in revising the notes of the previous lectures, noting down the notes and finishing the home assignment.
Now let’s have a look at the don’ts:
- Don’t lean or sit in an idle way
As discussed in the very first point, avoid leaning or sitting in relax position when watching video lecture. This will distract you and you won’t be able to understand the topic clearly.
- Don’t leave the videos in-between
Once you have started a video lecture, don’t move around in-between the video lecture, it will break the flow and you will lose your focus too.
- Don’t procrastinate
Even if any particular topic is not interesting, or you find it very theoretical, don’t leave it in between. Follow the habit of finishing it, procrastinating will only make it more complex.
- Don’t call for doubt assistance in the middle of a video
When watching a video lecture, don’t call your faculty for doubt clearance. It is better to note down all the doubts and ask them at once. This will save time and you never know if the particular doubt you asked gets covered in the later part of the video.
- Don’t fall for small issues
Last but definitely not the least, don’t fall for petty issues like electricity failure, device problem etc. If you face any technical issue, leave it there. Switch your focus to any other activity like home assignment or revising the notes. This will also help save time and do something productive rather than crying over the issue and taking it as an excuse to keep away from studying.
One thing you have to remember when studying through Digital Classes is ‘You are the guide for yourself’. You have to be responsible enough to follow a routine and abide by the advice given by your subject faculties and mentors.
