What are the best ways to effectively manage time with online classes?

In your experience…

  1. Taking notes on computer vs. notes on paper?

  2. Spreading assignments throughout the day or doing them all in one session?

  3. Doing 1-2 hours of work for the class each day, or having less days but longer sessions?

  4. How much effort should you put into the discussion boards? Should you just write the answers well enough and use your time to study, or do professors often award more points for students who display great knowledge on the boards?
