Study Hacks - How to be more productive:

Struggling to create a presentation? Word can create one for you automatically.

  • If you have all the necessary information on a Word document (open on a Web browser), all you have to do is select file - export - export to a PowerPoint presentation (see how here: Export a Word document to PowerPoint).

Trying to write an essay and feeling stuck?

  • Chewing gum can help you concentrate.
  • Take a break, dance to your favourite song for 5 minutes, go back to your essay.
  • Choose different methods to study:
    • is there a podcast that covers what you're studying?
    • is there a documentary you can watch? Ted talk?
    • study in a group via Zoom.

Struggling with procrastination?
