What extra study resources are available to me as an online student?

It can feel daunting as an online student, learning on your own. While traditional study groups may not be available to you, there are plenty of websites and apps to help you stay on track as you work towards your degree. MyStudyLife is an app that helps students keep track of assignments, tests, and study sessions. Websites like e-Tutoring.com and Khan Academy can help students hone their English and math skills. You can also check with your university for more traditional resources, such as learning centers or study tips available on their website or for download.

Having said that, some online schools may offer students a free laptop while they are enrolled in their program. Depending on the university, students may be allowed to keep the laptop upon graduation, while others want it returned once their degree is complete. Examples of universities that offer free laptops include Bethel University, Rochester College, and Wake Forest University.
