Help students develop a structured work plan

To support online students in appropriately managing their time to complete longer length assignments have them develop a detailed work plan (Boettcher & Conrad, 2016). The plan must include where they will work, the amount of time they will work, and the specific tasks they will complete in order to meet the due dates for each section of the assignment as well as the final assignment due date.
