COVID-19 took the world by surprise and accelerated the push towards online learning. Many college students are participating in college online instead of on campus in the traditional sense. Although this may mean less foot traffic in college bookstores, there are still several ways your store can support online students. Here are a few things that online students need as they prepare for their semester:
A Computer They Can Count On
Although it may seem like a no-brainer, a reliable computer is essential for online students.
This laptop can handle the biggest student demands. It is the most powerful Surface laptop with high speeds, quality graphics, and immersive gaming. Students will enjoy the versatility of a laptop, tablet, and portable studio.
Your students will thank you for this sleek and speedy study tool. This Surface has a vibrant touchscreen, longer battery life, and immersive audio. Backed by Studio Mics, video calls are high definition. This laptop includes Windows 10 Pro Operating System and Microsoft Office 365.
The most portable Surface touchscreen 2-in-1 is perfect for students. Students can easily fit their Surface Go 3 into backpacks or bags for easy transport between classes. It is also optimized for digital pen and touch making it the perfect versatile homework tool. With a faster Intel® Core™ processor, all-day battery, tablet-to-laptop versatility, and built-in Microsoft security, the Surface Go 3 is perfect for work and study.
A Comfortable Chair
Online students will be spending a lot of time at their home workspace, and a comfortable chair is essential. Arozzi offers chairs with their signature ergonomic design. Using their chairs is easier on students’ backs and better for posture for long periods of use.
Online school can sometimes mean more distractions, depending on where the student lives. Students will love a good pair of wireless headphones, especially if they have active noise cancelling.
A Reusable Notebook
Although many online students will want to put together an impressive study space with tech accessories, there are still many students who prefer paper and pen. However, filling up notebook after notebook can feel wasteful. A Reusable Notebook is an excellent alternative.
A reusable notebook typically has a special synthetic paper that allows students to write smoothly using the notebook’s pen, then erase and reuse when needed. They can also load their notes onto popular cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, box, OneNote, Slack, iCloud, iMessage, email and more.
One of the many benefits of college is the responsibility, organization, and planning that students learn as they enter the adult chapter of their life. For online students, this is no different, and many will greatly benefit from a high quality yearly planner.
