“How do I do my homework?” I thought. But it wasn’t just any old coursework. It was an online class at Reddit University. I’m still not quite sure how I found this, but it’s working!
The class is run by computer science major student students with years of experience. They answer questions and give advice to students that have similar questions. Students are allowed to post links to their syllabi and projects on the site. The class chat is moderated to keep the quality of discussion high. That’s all there is to it.
So how do you get some of this great coursework answered? Go to the editors answer page. There you will find many class times, topics and even quizzes that can be completed while you are online. Everything that goes into the class is laid out there for the view. If you’re unclear on something, just ask a question.
The site is pretty easy to navigate. If you know what you are looking for you should be able to quickly find it. If you aren’t sure, there are search functions that should help point you in the right direction. If you aren’t sure where to start, browse around for some class names. Try ‘ourses’ or ‘methods’. They should provide you with a list of related topics that you can look over.
It’s a great idea to try to complete as much of your coursework from home as possible. This way you can avoid cramming in a lot of classes and you can fit it in easier. Make sure you save all your assignments and study guides so that you can get them on your own when you have some free time.
Before the course starts, make sure you do some research on the subject you will be covering. Find some information about the course and any other supplementary material that will be included. This will help you get prepared before the course begins. The more you know beforehand, the better prepared you will be to get answers to your questions and to make sure you understand the coursework. That being said, don’t become so caught up in figuring out all your homework that you don’t pay attention to the coursework.
As mentioned earlier, editors are eager to help others. Many of them will even help you complete your coursework. There are two ways to get answers to your homework questions. You can either ask the editor who posted it, or you can directly go to the post in the question’s comments. Make sure you are able to find this type of question in the thread. It’s always a good idea to read the entire post because sometimes the post is answered by someone who didn’t post their actual answers, which makes it harder to recognize their tips.
Once you have the basic course outline in place, you will want to spend several hours each day studying. Write down everything you need to learn. This may mean studying for tests that will require a short answer section. On the night before your coursework starts, make sure you review your notes and get ready for the night before. This way you won’t be so nervous when class starts.
After your coursework is done and you are ready to start posting, make sure you put the site address on every question you answer. Try to use an editor who lives close to you. You don’t want to have to wait for your answer by hopping across the country. redditors tend to get upset when they aren’t able to help someone solve a problem immediately, and they don’t appreciate having to wait weeks for an answer to one simple question.
If you are having trouble getting answers to your homework, there are also a lot of other editors who can lend a hand. Class representatives may be able to help or even give you advice based on their own experience. Sometimes all you need to do is ask. Even if they can’t give you advice on specific classes, they may be able to suggest other classes you may want to take.
