With COVID-19 wreaking havoc in our lives, online education has been the norm over the past year. While teachers have been adapting to the new mode and innovating their methods of teaching, many students lack the required focus for online study. For a practical and intensive course like architecture, it becomes all the more challenging for both the teachers and students. While teachers strive to innovate their methods to impart the subject knowledge to surpass the obstacles for practical knowledge, architecture students might feel at a loss or lack of focus during the course of the study. To help the architecture students maintain their focus during the online study and not lose on their education, following is our 5-step guide to help them out –

Create a DEDICATED STUDY AND WORKSPACE

A concentrated or dedicated workspace is imperative when it comes to architecture studies. Online or offline, architecture students do require a dedicated space for themselves. With the online study, it is important to create a concentrated space for the student, wherein one should segregate the study area and work area. While the study area is important during class hours, having a workspace for preparing sheets and models helps in enhanced concentration levels. Better preparedness leads to better focus during and after the class.

Keep Distractions at Bay  

To remain focused the key is to avoid any distractions – games, television, Netflix, YouTube and other uncountable distractions. During the online studies, one of the major distractions could be a bed. Yes! You read that right!

Most of the students, instead of using a study table would prefer to listen to the professor from the comfort of their beds. What’s more! Online sessions do provide a lot of instances when such a probability exists and is being practiced. But, the downside of this arrangement of taking your online sessions is that students can easily slip into sleep while the class is still on.

Be sure to keep any sort of distractions including sleep at bay to be able to reap benefits out of your online study sessions. Remember that while you are at home, you still have to be competent in your studies to achieve your goals.

Feel as if you are in the Physical Class – Get Interactive!

The students should not dismiss the importance of online classes, rather the batch should try to create the feel of physical classes during the online sessions. This is important, as, at some point, the online sessions start to become monotonous. Not just for the students but the teachers as well. Monologues or a one-way route is not the best method of discourse. Therefore, the students should try to be as interactive as possible, like they would be in a physical class.

Don’t let the screens be a hurdle for your curiosity, doubts or learning!

One should avoid avoiding online sessions or waste time on the plea of their missing or incomplete paraphernalia.

Take Onus for Yourself

No one in the world can guarantee your focus or achievements except for yourself. Once you have the onus to be focused to achieve your goals, you sure are not going to lose focus in any case – online/offline sessions. To that, you should make yourself accountable for the losses or gains you make out of your online study sessions. Once you are accountable to yourself, believe me, nothing can deter your focus in any situation. Being accountable for oneself is the biggest responsibility an architecture student can take up during these tough times to cope with the online sessions.

In the end, time is of the essence for students and one should make the best use of it!
