[KIT] How to avoid getting distracted during online class

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, most things have been moved online, as well as the class that we used to attend physically was moved to remote learning. So it’s a really challenging time for all students. Attending online classes, students need to sit in one place for long periods of time, it’s easy to make students feel bored and distracted. Some students can not fully pay attention to remote class, then they do something else, like scrolling on Facebook, sleeping, watching the drama, which makes their study performance really bad. If you are one of the students who are currently facing this problem, this article is right for you. I will be sharing some tips you can try.

1. Don’t put any devices next to you

Put other electronic devices away from you. Just focus on your device that you access to online class only. If you put the phone next to you, there is a high chance that you would grab your phone instead of paying attention to the online class.  Even if you hear any notifications from your phone, just ignore them, don’t let them get your attention.

2. Always interact with your teacher and classmates

This is a very effective way to avoid getting distracted. If you have any opinion or idea to share, just always share it. Turning on your mic to speak up in class might make students feel a little bit weird and shy, but don’t worry, teachers always expect ideas and opinions from students. Also, you can ask any questions that you have during online classes, this way will help you pay attention to the class, also you have a clear understanding of the lesson concept as well.

3. If you feel sleepy, go wash your face immediately

If you want to get some sleep, try to wash your face immediately. After you wash your face, but you don’t feel any better, try to ask your teacher for a 5-10 minutes break. In case you can’t get the permission, alright it’s time to get some sleep by yourself. 

4. Take note during class

You can use paper, laptop to take notes, it depends on your choices. If you only listen to the lecture without doing anything, there are a lot of chances, you get sleepy. So don’t just listen, take note of the important concept of the lesson.

5. Prepare your study table

Move your table away from the bed, if your room doesn’t have enough space to do that, it’s a bit challenging. You need to make sure that your table is neat and clean, and makes you feel comfortable with studying. 

6. Have a good sleep every night

If you want to avoid feeling sleepy during class, make sure that you get enough sleep every night. It not only helps you feel fresh, but it also gives a lot of benefits to both your mental health and physical health.

7. Manage your social media notifications

If you don’t want your notifications to distract you from your online classes, don’t forget to turn them off before you’re having class. If you don’t want to turn off your notifications, you can also set the phone to silent mode.
