Virtual Study Hall
Tired of studying alone? Having trouble staying focused?
Join Academic Learning Centre student hosts to study together online. At the beginning of each study hall we each set a goal, work for 25 minutes, take a break, share what we accomplished, and then set another goal (or continue with the first).
We will be online for 3 of these 25-minute sessions (90 minutes). You can join for 1, 2 or 3 sessions!
Chat is open during study hall, and the host will be happy answer questions about goal setting, studying, and learning.
You do not need to register. Simply choose the day you want to attend, click on the + sign, and join using the button found below that day. You can join from your computer, smartphone or tablet. You must have a UM email address to join the sessions. Before you enter the room, you will be asked for your name and email. Your email will not be visible to other students attending, but it is saved by UMLearn and may be used by the ALC for data purposes or to remind you of upcoming virtual study halls.
The room will be accessible about five minutes before the session starts. If it's not, wait a few minutes and try again.
Sessions are not recorded so feel free to join with audio and video on.
Virtual Study Hall for Final Exam Prep
Come join us in Zoom as we study for final exams. The study hall hours are 2:30 pm to 10 pm and will run every day (including on the weekend) from Tuesday, April 19 until Monday, April 25. The study halls will be facilitated by student staff with training in study skills and can, if asked, help with goal setting, and direct you to additional final exam study resources.
No registration is required. You can stay for as long or as short a time as you need. We encourage you to keep your camera on but it’s not required. Breakout rooms can be created for groups of students who are interested in preparing together for a specific exam or who would like to chat with friends while studying.
