May 7, 2010, Newsletter Issue #207: Preparing for online study on the road

Tip of the Week

Students pursuing online master's degrees in oil and gas engineering management often have jobs that require a lot of travel. If you're a road warrior who needs to travel and study at the same time, doing a little advance planning and creating a packing list for your online course materials can save you from forgetting an important assignment or wasting time trying to find a copy center. Be sure to program your cell phone with the phone numbers for your professor, university technical support, student services and any of your fellow students that you call regularly. Check with your hotel before you leave to see if they offer fax and copy services. If not, inquire about the location of the nearest copy center. When packing your bags, try to keep your course materials together. Pack your syllabus, textbooks and supplies as well as any special hardware you need (like a microphone or external speakers) in a single bag. If you pack your course materials in a carry-on bag, you can use the hours you spend in-flight for valuable study time for your online master's degree in oil and gas engineering management.
