Accessibility Services understands that online learning may be a new experience for you. Here are some tips to make your online learning both positive and productive. 

Practice time management 

Online classes can allow a very flexible schedule, but freedom can make it difficult to maintain time management skills. To avoid procrastination and cramming during online learning, we suggest that you:

  1. Make a list of assignments and readings to do
  2. Budget time for each task (i.e. designated study time)
  3. Plan and stick to a daily routine

Remote Proctoring 

  • AS can provide remote proctoring services through Zoom
  • Students can schedule a “practice” Zoom meeting session with AS by contacting lbarrera@laverne.edu
  • Students have an upcoming exam, should please check whether your professor will be monitoring the class during the exam

Scheduling Exams

  • When submitting an exam request, please note that you will only be able to schedule your exam on the hour (for example, at 10am) or half hour (for example, at 10:30am).
