What else have you taken and where? How happy are you with online classes in general? Are you successful in online coursework? What works for you and what doesn't? What Did NOT Predict Course Quality Cost did not predict course quality Institutional prestige did not predict course quality What Did Affect Course Quality The instructor The input by other students Student's interest and motivation in the subject Web site ease of use, mobile access and information quality Why Students LOVE Online Ed #1 Control over their schedule #2: They like "going to class" from bed, in pajamas #3: Caregivers can stay at home AND take classes #4: Save money (gas, parking permits, eating on campus) #5: Save time (travel time, parking spot hunting, waiting for class to begin) #6: You can still attend class even if you have to travel during the semester Other Reasons Why Students LOVE Online Ed Some students said they are easily distracted by other students in a traditional classroom They feel more "one-on-one" with the professor They can progress at their own pace through the material Problem... Distractions at Home are ENDLESS Student is easily distracted while working on online classwork Don't Feel Bad... It's Biological Immediate rewards are FAR more desirable to our brain than distant rewards This is called temporal discounting Dopamine is to blame! Functions in the brain: Reward and motivation Pleasure, euphoria Fine motor function Compulsion Perseveration Distractions like social media, movies, music etc. give us a jolt of dopamine and that feels GOOD! Distant rewards (final exam scores, degrees, etc.)... not so much Online Success is Highest When: Student is HIGHLY self-motivated Student is already interested in the subject Student likes technology (and has more than one device to access content) Student is organized (time, materials) Student uses a self-imposed regular schedule for the online class Student participates in discussion boards / blogs / virtual office hours Online Success is Lowest When: Student is not interested in the subject Student is not comfortable with technology Student has erratic schedule and cannot make time for class work Student does not participate with others in the class Student procrastinates and misses deadlines Students who do not read well (or do not enjoy reading) Tips and Tricks Watch "Time Management" video Schedule class time AND study time (not the same thing!) Study only during your Prime Productivity Time Anticipate, minimize and deal with distractions The Pomodoro Technique Set a timer for 25 minutes WORK for 25 minutes without interruptions When the timer goes off, give yourself a small reward and a 5 minute break Over time, increase the working period Get Things Done (GTD) Apps OmniFocus Things ToDo Due ToDoist Remember the Milk PrioritizePro Priority Matrix Covey's Time Management Matrix Some motivational items and penguins... of course!

How to study effectively with 6 essential skills. Boost your study performance with strategies recommended by science - The ANSWER Method. These tips are for high school or university students preparing for exams or wanting to learn more effectively. For free downloadable posters about these six strategies for effective learning, click this link - https://www.dropbox.com/s/sofzb2m3sqzwvlv/6%20Strategies%20for%20Effective%20Learning.pdf?dl=1 This video is a collaboration between The Learning Scientists (http://www.learningscientists.org/) and Memorize Academy (https://www.memorize.academy). EXAMPLES of specific Elaboration questions from MATH You're studying calculus. The topic is “derivatives”. How do derivatives work? Well, they are the rate of the change. How does that work? You take a look at one point, then you take a look at a prior point, over some interval. And then you take the difference divided by the interval. As that interval approaches zero, you have the instantaneous rate of change. Why does this happen? Because “instantaneous” means that the interval is nothing. SCIENCE Imagine you are studying neural communication, maybe in a biology, neuroscience, or psychology class. How does neural communication work? If we look at one neuron, the dendrites receive messages from many other neurons, and then the messages converge in the soma. If there is enough of a positive charge within the soma, then an action potential will occur, and an electrical signal goes down the axon. When the signal reaches the terminal buttons, neurotransmitters release into the synapse where they communicate with the dendrites of the next neuron. Why does this happen? The neurotransmitters are chemicals that allow neurons to communicate with one another. The pattern of activation among different neurons (which neurons fire, how quickly, what neurotransmitters they release) determines the message in your brain. You might then ask, how does the axon work? The axon is a long tail-like structure that produces the electrical signal. How does the signal travel? The axon is covered in myelin sheath, a fatty substance that insulates the axon. The myelin sheath works like the rubber around the cord of an electrical appliance, and it serves to make the electricity travel faster. Why have myelin sheath? Because we need our neurons to be able to send signals fast, since we need to be able to react, make decisions, move quickly, perceive feeling in our skin instantly, etc. Make sure to compare ideas to learn how they are similar and different. For example, an axon and terminal buttons are both parts of a neuron; but, the axon sends an electrical signal while the terminal buttons release chemicals. Both Schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease are related to the neurotransmitter dopamine, but Schizophrenia is the result of too much dopamine while Parkinson’s disease is the result of too little dopamine. Also, try to make connections to your own memories or experiences, and compare ideas to learn how they are similar and different. We already made the connection from myelin sheath on axons to the rubber on cords to electrical appliances. Here is another example: a family member or close friend who suffers from Schizophrenia disease is suffering from too much dopamine. This means that too much dopamine is being released, by the terminal buttons, into the synapse. A doctor could give them a drug to reduce the dopamine in their brain, called a dopamine antagonist. If too much of this drug is used, the patient might begin developing symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease. How would a dopamine antagonist work? … continue asking yourself elaborative questions! HISTORY Imagine you’re studying World War II, and the attack on Pearl Harbor. You could ask yourself, how did this attack happen? On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. The attack included Japanese fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes. Why did this happen? The Japanese intended to destroy the United States’ Pacific Fleet so that it could not interfere with Japanese operations. Here you could also ask another type of question: What was the result of this historic event? Well, Japanese casualties were light, while they damaged eight U.S. Navy battleships. The Arizona was among those that the Japanese sunk, and was not raised from the shallow water. U.S. aircrafts were also destroyed, and 2,403 Americans were killed (1,178 were injured). Why is this event important? The day after the attack, Roosevelt delivered his Infamy Speech, the United States declared war on Japan, and Japanese-Americans were then relocated to internment camps. You could then go on: how did the U.S. enter the war? How did the Pearl Harbor attack lead up to the release of the atomic bomb? How did the war end? And so on. There are so many ways to explain the idea and add details!

Recommended Engineering Books http://amzn.to/2xnwjRg Information credits : Edward Crawley (Professor at MIT) Voice Credits : Reed Salan (CSUF Civil Engineering) - Script - 10 Real Tips for Success for Engineering Students 1. Identify the people who inspire you, and find out what makes them tick. If you love Apple products, Steve Jobs may be your idol, or perhaps you love the Segway and its creator, Dean Kamen. You can easily find out a lot of information about Jobs and Kamen—or just about any other prominent person in technology—so use it to look into what's helped these people and their companies become so successful. Then emulate their good traits in your personal, scholastic, and professional life. 2. Develop a portfolio of projects. Participate in every hands-on, experiential learning opportunity that a balanced schedule allows. This way, you'll have something unique to show a prospective employer (or venture capitalist) when you graduate, while other students will only be able to list their courses. In addition, you'll be far more likely to retain the knowledge you've gained in classes because you'll be applying it and, in the process, boosting your communication and interpersonal skills 3. Learn the value of networking. When it comes to being a leader, whom you know is almost as important as what you know. Attend lectures on your campus and introduce yourself to the speakers. Check with your school's alumni association to get a list of alumni from your program who want to connect with undergraduates. In addition to E-mail, you can use LinkedIn or other social media tools to connect online. But remember: There's no substitute for a traditional, face-to-face meeting, so if you can find a way to meet in person, that's always the best. 4. Work in teams as much as you can. Whether it's creating a solar-powered car, participating in a sport, or writing for the school paper, get involved with an organization that requires a team effort to produce great results. Throughout your career, you can be sure you'll work in teams, and the skills you develop in school will help prepare you to lead teams when you graduate. 5. Seek informal leadership roles. You're always a leader, whether you're officially in charge of a team or not. Sounds counterintuitive, but you can lead from any position in an organization by influencing how people work together and how they make decisions. Usually people think that the leader is the president or the manager, but if you learn how to recognize and deal with various leadership styles from any position in a team, you'll be seen as a leader when you take on your first job or internship. 6. Find your flaws—and fix them. As with any skill, leadership needs constant improvement. When you are part of a team, try to create a way to get feedback from team members, group leaders, and professors. When you have concrete feedback on how people view you, you can work to improve your skills, including communication and leadership. Plus, you'll learn how to accept—and give—constructive criticism. That's absolutely necessary for your future career. 7. Take a business class. As an engineer, it's not enough for you to be technically proficient; you need to have business savvy. If you're going to be a leader, you need to understand what a P&L is (also known as an income statement), read organization charts, know how to negotiate contracts, and be familiar with the myriad other functions that every top engineer needs to know. Otherwise, you won't understand what to do when an accountant, lawyer, or middle manager gets in the way. A business course or two can take you a long way, and these classes are often easier to pass than your calculus course! 8. Take design and other humanities classes. There's a wide world out there beyond problem sets, laboratories, and theory. Take a visual design course so you'll learn to represent ideas graphically. Take a cognitive science course to learn how people interpret the world and understand it. Take a literature course to develop your knowledge and appreciation of the classic books, which will help you write and communicate more effectively. 9. Make your summers productive. Employers place tremendous value on practical experience. Seek out internship opportunities actively and early in your academic career. Try to demonstrate through your internships a series of evolving leadership experiences, and use the internships to build your portfolio of actual projects/products. 10. Recruit and develop your personal board of directors. As an undergraduate, you might feel alone when confronted with hard decisions about the courses to take, jobs to apply for, or even balancing school work and your personal life. You won't feel alone if you develop a personal board of directors just for you. - study tips for engineering students - Image credit "http://www.freepik.com/free-vector/student-reading-illustration_826080.htm" Designed by Freepik

While most colleges and universities have some sort of first-year program, student attrition goes well beyond the first year. And with increasing pressure to demonstrate outcomes, most commonly measured in job and graduate school placement rates, career development operations are under increasing scrutiny and pressure. The focus for the future must be on providing the appropriate services and structures that support students during their entire college experience—from the time they are admitted until after they graduate. It’s not just about improving our retention—the emphasis must shift to improving graduation rates.

This kind of study environment can affect your retention and could cause trouble if you’re in a class or program that builds class to class, semester to semester. Which is the situation that Courtney has found herself in, listen to her describe what she’s going through in her accelerated nursing course and learn the tips and plan we created for her to succeed and get better grades. __ Get better grades without the stress, overwhelm, and lack of social life, schedule a complimentary study call with me: http://bit.ly/studycall
