Essentials of Time Management

Scaffolding your success

Remote learning requires extra discipline. Remember that a UCSC Silicon Valley Extension remote course requires the same commitment as any in-person class. You are still required to attend, participate, and meet your deadlines. Carefully review your syllabus so you know your instructor's expectations.

The challenge is the much of the work will now be completed on your own time. This means you really have to manage your time intentionally and thoughtfully.

Quick tips

  • Schedule time to study, read, and do assignments each day of the week.
  • Add due dates to your calendar and set reminders.
  • Make a daily to-do list.
  • Keep track of the time you’re spending on the course, and make sure to stay on schedule.
