How to Get the Most Out Of Online Learning
It’s quite extraordinary that these days we can study and achieve top level qualifications from the comforts of our own home (on our couch, in our pajamas- can you believe it?). With the great strides technology has taken comes the joy of trying to learn effectively and efficiently from home. With all of the daily life chores and activities, it is important to create a calm space where you can study diligently, and create a timetable so keep you on track.
Here’s how to get the most out of your online learning experience:
1) Create a Calm Space
Don’t have a home office? No problem! Clear off an area with a peaceful outlook, declutter the surrounding area, pour yourself a glass of water and get to work! The calmer the space, the less distraction.
2) Take Notes
Just like learning in the classroom, learning online should require note-taking as well! It’s scientifically proven that if you write something down, you’re more likely to remember it.
3) Create a Schedule
You wouldn’t expect yourself to learn a school subject in just one day, so why would you expect yourself to learn about (social media marketing, crochet, nutrition) in 24-hours? Sit-down at the beginning of the week and create a schedule, timetable per say, to assure you are staying on the right track.
4) Keep up the momentum
Just completed a big assessment? Fantastic! Give yourself the afternoon to enjoy, and then come straight back into it. The momentum will drive you forward with online learning. Keep up a good pace and you will give you will be able to apply your learnings immediately.
