Organising assignment resources
A longer assignment inevitably involves large quantities of preparation work. You may need to organise and review lecture notes, class readings, websites, online tutorials, reading notes and drafts. Name all documents clearly and group them together in folders in a way that makes sense to you. By keeping materials in one place, you will save yourself time and stress in the long run. If you do not already have an effective system, try out some of the applications below.
Microsoft One Drive (Access via Portal App 'my files')
You have access to Microsoft 365 applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel through your university account as well as cloud storage space on One Drive to save the documents you create. Saving your documents in the cloud means you don't have to carry around memory sticks, send documents to yourself or have multiple versions of documents. Everything is kept in one place. Note: to access your files you will need an internet connection.
Alternatives: Dropbox, Google Drive.
This note-making application can help you keep your ideas organised in one place.
This application enables you to collect, annotate and organise the web content you use in your studies.
