Learning has taken a flexible approach through online classes since the pandemic started. Online learning takes off with unique pros and challenges compared to traditional face-to-face classes. It is best to prepare students not only mentally but physically as well for them to get the best out of their online classes.
As another year of school is fast approaching, here are clever study tips from SM Stationery to help you ace your online classes at home.
Create a study space
Whether you choose to study in your living room or bedroom, having a dedicated space is essential for your online class. You must know the type of learning environment that works best for you. You do not want to study in an area that is noisy and full of distractions.
Create a simple study nook in a quiet space to keep you focused on your studies. Instead of just doing your homework on the bed, get a study table, ergonomic chair, and storage solutions to complete your study space setup. Do not forget to prepare your laptop or mobile gadgets.
Study with proper lighting and ventilation
Your learning environment should have proper ventilation so you can study comfortably throughout your online classes. If you love studying in open areas like your balcony during the day, a portable desk fan is your lifesaver to staying cool while busy.
Good lighting will help you stay alert during your online study sessions. While natural lighting is better, it is best to put an energy-saving LED table lamp on your desk. At SM Stationery, enjoy 10% off on lamps and organizers until August 15, 2022.
iFuture Desk Lamp with Cellphone Wireless Charger
Paying attention to online classes is difficult when you have a messy study nook. Organizing your study space essentials will make it easy for you to stay focused on your tasks. Start sorting your school supplies by category, keep the most used items on your study desk, and place books neatly on your shelves.
Put your small learning essentials like notepads, fasteners, and staplers in a functional desk tray. Meanwhile, you can put large items such as notebooks, paper pads, and extra stationeries in a 3-drawer storage unit. Keep your writing supplies at arm's reach with a dual-purpose pen holder with an LED lamp.
Invest in online learning gadgets and accessories
As an online learner, you spend more than 8 hours in front of your laptop or tablet from a downward perspective, which can strain your neck and spine. Instead of using a stack of books to raise your laptop, you can improve your study ergonomics with laptop and phone stands available on the market.
A laptop stand elevates the screen to your eye level, creating a natural angle for viewing without straining your eyes and neck. You can also invest in a laptop stand with a built-in cooling fan to keep your laptop cool and prevent overheating.

Manage your time well.
The most important study tip of all is managing your time wisely. Online classes can be stressful if you do not handle your study schedule well.
Focus on one class at a time, build a study plan, use scheduling tools, and set a time in a day for studying. A good planner or journal may help along the way so you can keep track of your online study progress.
Making small changes in your study habits at home will help you ace your online classes easily. Nothing is more fulfilling as a student than acing all your lessons. Use these tips for online classes and you are all set for the new school year!
