As many students shift from in-person classes to online only, Bama By Distance is seeking tips on Twitter from those experienced with taking online classes and sharing them with traditional University of Alabama students.

Some Twitter tips shared so far include:

Allan Guenther said that a quiet, relaxing study space free from distraction is essential.

Alayna Levie said, “First, don’t stress about the change – you can do it!”

She recommends reaching out to other UA students, faculty and staff for support if students feel alone.

“After all, UA is one big family and we will be through this together!”

Jerry W. Parker said students shouldn’t be concerned with multitasking. He suggest sticking to a study plan, doing one thing at a time, taking breaks in-between and marking tasks off a list as progression is made.

James Pelham gave similar advice in saying that everything shouldn’t try to be crammed into a single time slot.

“I’d say set a schedule if you can for study and assignments,” he said.
