Either complete it by yourself, with a friend, or with your parents (to prove how committed you are to making the most of your higher education!)

Instructor Emily Schwartz, college educator and author of "The Time Diet: Time Management for College Survival," guides students through four, 10-15 minute video modules on this time management for college students course. Each module is packed with useful, time-tested tricks and a chance to apply the information to real-life scenarios for long-lasting retention.

The trick to this module's effectiveness is The Time Diet method. Everything students to during the day is either a Meat, Vegetable, or Dessert based on how difficult or enjoyable it is. The trick to having excellent time management skills is to plan a "balanced diet" or tasks each day.

This approach makes time management more...digestible and easier to understand and implement. Don't let another day go by without these simple strategies that can make a dramatic difference in your academic experience.

Take this Time Management for College Students course now and learn how to manage you time effectively in college life.
