Every day, many people tend to postpone unpleasant activities, such as learning for examinations or drafting a paper. Instead of doing their work immediately, they concentrate on supposedly more urgent activities, such as surfing on the internet or cleaning their apartment. The Chair of Applied Psychology, together with the Center for Open and Distance Learning of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), developed a video-based online course for better self- and time management. This course will be available online on the Iversity platform in August.
