Video conference platforms can conveniently connect students across locations and schedules, and they're especially useful to help combat self-isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, not everyone is experienced or savvy with this sort of setup; it may take some further education and tinkering to get a study group on a regular schedule. If you’re looking to send your study group online or are just trying to figure out how to set up a virtual study group, follow the tips below.
Avoid getting off-topic and falling behind by setting an agenda ahead of time. This way your group can focus on the tasks at hand and commit to the study materials more easily. Treat everyone’s time as valuable, and have everything you need in place beforehand to ensure the session runs smoothly.
