Advice to students
• Have a private workspace. It should be a quiet, organized and non-distracting working environment.
• Create a goal. Goals will empower you when your motivation drops while learning online.
• Be planned and organized. You should integrate your personal time with your study schedule.
• Don’t hesitate to ask questions whenever you need.
• Master the program you use for online learning. The effect of technical facilities and motivation in distance education has been proven by researches.
• Do not panic when your stress and anxiety increase.
• Do you experience the motivation problem in every lesson or some lessons? You may feel insecure in the lesson where you have motivation problems. You have to find the reason that drives you to this feeling.
• Keep your energy high. Some feel energetic by taking a break with food and drink, some by solving a difficult problem.
• Give yourself awards.
