I use a digital student planner and I set up all my assessment dates and exams before classes start, and I make sure I keep checking stuff off as I so it so I can see the progress I'm making :) it's a little hard to use but My Study Life is good and is on both mobile and desktop.

@astralura Since I'm only an online student My student life is a little overkill, but I definitely use habitica to help getting things done (along with a kanban board and a basic calendar).
