Since there is no specific time when you need to complete your coursework, time management and organization are critical to your success. Here are some tips for organizing your time:

  • Set aside time at least every other day to work on course material. Enable the course email notifications so you can easily follow the discussion board and participate.
  • Ask a fellow student to be your buddy and do weekly check-in calls or emails with him or her. Use this communication to hold each other accountable.
  • Ask someone close to you (e.g., a co-worker, spouse, friend, etc.) to act as a support person who can provide encouragement and remind you to complete your work.
