Online Classes

Does anyone take or have taken online classes. Im taking some now and I hate them I am not self motivated /disciplined . How did you or do you keep up in an online class and not fall behind from procrastination/ lack of interest in the class?

I'm not sure how your online class is set up or whether or not it's similar, but I took college level astronomy online while I was in high school...we had to make board posts and go through other board posts and comment on them, and our professor was really involved with what we had to say. I did usually procrastinate until the last minute for a lot of assignments, though. I think using apps that'll block certain websites while you're studying will be helpful, and try to write out "Today I will do ______" in terms of reading and hw problems for every day. I ended up getting an A due to extra credit, and the fact that I volunteered at a space camp that summer, so that kept me kinda interested. I suppose what kept me motivated most in that class was being forced to interact with other students so often, and having a lot of interaction with the instructor.

I attend my local community college and some of the classes I took were online. I took classes in person that I knew I would benefit from being in an actual class room, like math. I worked hard on my online classes. I was also very motivated because I had been wanting to continue my education and online classes made that possible, so it was something I really wanted to do. Just think about the subject and how you learn, then ask yourself if you will do better in a traditional class room. Good luck.
