Trying to find ways to work on homework when time is limited? How about studying while doing laundry? Working full time and going to school requires you to be prudent about how you spend your time. Time management is a huge factor when it comes to accomplishing that workload. Fortunately, your iPhone can be your biggest ally in productive time management. It even helps you accomplish assignments quicker and easier. The iPhone can also be a great learning tool. Let’s talk about some ways your iPhone can help you manage your workload.
Recording Lectures and Audiobooks
One of the best ways your iPhone can help you is by recording your lectures. We recommend recording them in your Voice Memos app. This will allow you to listen back to them at any time. It’s a great way to multi-task. You can drive and listen to your lecture, listen while you do chores, and even listen to a lecture while working. Listening to those lectures can help you cram studying into your busy schedule. Also, if you are a visual learner, make yourself some note cards. Look over those note cards a couple of times then record yourself. Even if you are a visual learner it will still help you learn to listen to yourself and what you wrote. Even just listening to your notes in the background while working can help your memorization skills. This is the perfect solution for someone who can plug their headphones in at work. Also, you can usually find books for your class on Audible or digitally download them from your school library.
Writing an Essay
Forgot about a last-minute essay, but don’t have access to a computer? Don’t worry; your iPhone has you covered. You can use the Google Docs app to write on your phone. Here is the best part: you don’t actually have to type your essay out on your phone. You can use your iPhone’s talk to text feature. This is a great way to write an essay as fast as you speak – probably much faster than you type. It won’t always be 100% accurate to what you said, so check for corrections. If you have a complex paper with long sentences, it can cut your writing time down quite a bit. Try to save your data for this as Google Docs saves everything to the cloud. This can burn through your data. You can also download your document for offline editing.
Maybe you have time to write an essay, but still, like dictating your paper. You can have both Google Docs open on your iPhone and on your computer. You can dictate and edit in real-time. This also allows you to transition dictating to inserting a graph seamlessly. It’s a great tip for students who may be in a pinch. Remember to also protect your iPhone and save your data if you plan on using this advice.
Record a Video Presentation
Let’s give an example: Rob has to give a presentation in class. Recently, however, he found out a family member passed away and he needs to go to the funeral. He meets with his professor and they discuss a way for him to still give his presentation. He is to record a video of himself and his presentation and submit it to his class. In this example, Rob doesn’t have to worry about using a special camera. The iPhone camera has such good audio and video quality that he doesn’t have to go anywhere or spend any money. He can do it right at home. You can also use this for your work as well. Film a work presentation and send it to a colleague. This can buy you some time to study or not skip a class when work gets busy.
Set reminders on your iPhone
We’d like to leave you with a simple tip for the iPhone, but one we feel is important. With your time and schedule so loaded down, you naturally are going to forget things. It happens. You can’t do it all. Please use the reminders app on your iPhone. Set reminders for when to submit assignments and went to study. Set reminders on emailing a professor or a video chat with group members. Using reminders on your iPhone can keep you on the right track to success. Don’t be hesitant to set one for simple things such as taking out the trash. With so much going on in your life, it helps to have something that can keep you on top of school work.
