Online learning presents many benefits for today’s student, including the flexibility to study and work on your assignments at your own pace and during the time that is most convenient for you. At CPS, we understand that no two students are alike; what works best for one student may not be suitable for another.

Check out these four student archetypes to determine if one of these may help you decide what helps you best when learning.

Weekend Warrior

Work a lot of hours during your week? Finding those 1-2 days on your “weekend “ could be a great way to focus on course work.

If you’re a working professional with other personal obligations that take up your free time at the end of your working day, designating time on your days off could be a great way to help complete your weekly assignments and readings. If you have a traditional work schedule with weekends off or work an alternative schedule with days off at different times during the week, you may benefit from dedicating portions of your free time off solely to schoolwork.

Early Bird

Are you an early riser? Do you work best early in the mornings before others are wake? This could be a great time to focus on course work.

Spending time early in the morning to get assignments completed could also be a great way to make sure you stay on track academically. If you feel you have the most motivation soon after you wake up, it may benefit you to spend some time each morning working on assignments or catching up on reading. Utilizing this time alone can help you avoid distractions and other busyness once everyone else in your household is awake.

Is staying up late easy for you? Do you work best late at night while others sleep? This could be a great time to focus on course work.

Similar to the Early Bird, taking advantage of quiet time to yourself once everyone else has gone to bed could allow you to get coursework done. The lack of possible interruptions can increase your productivity and help you remain focused on your studies. However, it is helpful to keep in mind that you should continue to strive to get sufficient sleep and rest to maintain your overall health and well-being.

Slow & Steady

Are you able to carve out time almost every day? This could be a great way to schedule your week to focus on course work.

Setting up a consistent daily schedule to work on classwork is a great way to make sure you stay on top of your classwork. If you are able to find a couple of hours every day to work on assignments, you may find it worthwhile to utilize a daily schedule to consistently stay ahead of your classwork.

There is nothing “easy” about going back to school when you are balancing work, family, & academics. Luckily, you can review these archetypes to find the one that best describes you! You can even use different types if your schedule varies each week.
