You could try a speed reading course. There are some great techniques for skim-reading & getting straight to the important bits.
I'm working full-time & doing 2 units of a Masters (online, 10 week blocks). It's pretty mental, but I just take it one week at a time. With text chapters, I usually read the "summary" or "key concepts" page first, then only read the bits I don't know enough about already. With journal articles, I read the abstract & conclusion, then read in more detail if essential for an assignment. Then it's just a matter of picking key quotes to drop into the assignment. If you're doing your reading electronically you can copy & paste relevant bits of info into Word as you go. This approach works quite well for me.
Don't be afraid to ask for extensions either.
EDIT: I just realised this is a few months old!

I agree with the last post. The assignment marking sheet, or outcomes is what can make you pass or fail. It also helps to be upfront about your situation. So that the lecturer can have the opportunity to reach out and help. If they don't then unfortunately you do have to ask for the help. I have found that most lecturers are accommodating.

I'd also recommend using the online forum for off-campus students in your unit (if you have one). The recent unit I did had lots of useful contributions and discussions from off-campus students that really helped with learning. Even I really benefited from it even though I study on-campus. Also, approach the lecturer or off-campus tutor for any issues, don't leave it until it's too late, you might even be able to speak to them on the phone for assignment clarifications.
