How do we prepare for the upcoming online learning?
In view of the raging coronavirus, in order to maintain continuous learning progress, many schools conduct online learning for their students. Schools and teachers do their best to prepare online learning materials to help students such as countless seminars, webinars, labs, notes, etc.
As there is no tutor to monitor your progress. How much you can learn depends on your personal efforts. If you want to be successful, how are you going to overcome the new online learning environment?
Here are some tips and suggestions for you to learn how to prepare for online learning.
1. Arrange a time
You can take some time to check the timetable and make a study timetable to ensure that you are fully prepared to attend all the tutorials and lectures online. Please read the relevant content beforehand, and prepare questions to ask the instructor if there are any difficulties.
After setting up a semester routine based on the course schedule, you will find that your time suddenly becomes more flexible because you will be taking online courses. However, please try not to waste time-if possible, try to follow the same schedule as before. Try to log on to the online learning site on time and listen to the online course.
2. Regular breaks
When you study and work online for a long time, you will find yourself easily losing concentration. In addition, online over-learning cannot effectively retain information in our brains. Therefore, you can plan to establish a few minutes of rest to play on the phone and take a walk. If you plan them well, you won’t be distracted, and you won’t be playing your phone at work or in online courses.
3. Fully prepare for online learning tools
Paper and pen
Even if you are taking an online course, traditional learning tools are still very useful. Paper notes will be easier to read, and handwriting will be easier to retain memory and knowledge. Writing notes by hand can actually help you better remember the notes you took down. Handwriting has a longer impact on memory.
Pen and paper are excellent tools for focusing on the task at hand. You can jot down some notes while listening to the highlights and important content in the online classroom. Handwriting can express yourself better and summarize the main points.
For online learning, the most important learning tool should be your own computer or laptop. You need a device to connect to the Internet so that you can take online courses. Laptops can help you organize and remember online homework better. Students can easily view all tasks in one learning tool, edit, modify and copy their homework, and communicate with classmates, tutors, and professors by email.
With the support of multimedia online learning tools on your computer, you can obtain high-quality information and develop its autonomy. Individualized and differentiated learning can be achieved through more technologies in this online learning tool.
Online meeting software
Before taking online courses, you need to download online meeting software. Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Cisco Webex and Skype are the most common video conferencing applications used in online meetings and classrooms.
If your school has developed an online learning tool for you, you need to download it and learn how to use these online learning tools. For example, you need to search online meeting software for how to implement screen sharing, whiteboard, meeting records, and other functions.
The screen on the phone or laptop is too small. Their small screen size severely limits our efficiency. Therefore, we need to expand the screen. At that time, the portable monitor will be your best online learning tool. Lexuma XScreen has a 15.6-inch touch screen, which is a portable display that best suits your needs.

Lexuma XScreen portable display has 1920 x 1080 pixels HD resolution and HDR image enhancement function. You can use the XScreen portable display to see more details in bright and vivid colors.

This feature not only makes the learning tool easy to watch but also very suitable for drawing and video editing.
Easy to listen
When you are in online classes, you must listen to the teacher or lecturer. Sometimes, teachers will talk about related topics, which are not included in the textbook but in the syllabus. At that time, we need to pay attention to what they are saying. To make the listening clearer, the speaker should be prepared.
XScreen portable monitors have built-in high-quality speakers. With these high-quality built-in stereo speakers, XScreen portable touch screen displays can help you transform computers and laptops into full-featured workspaces. Even if the computer’s original speakers are damaged, there is no need to carry any bulky external speakers. Using this portable monitor, you can clearly listen to the content of the online course.

In addition to displaying the same screen on a computer or laptop, the XScreen portable display can also be used as a secondary display or touch screen in a dual-monitor or multi-monitor setup.
