Online learning is flexible and convenient but in some ways it can be more challenging than regular training programmes. It requires you to be extremely disciplined and focused.
If you are considering an online course this video provides some rules to help you make the most of your learning experience.
Set clear and attainable goals
Goals are good measuring tools and help to keep you motivated. Write goals down to make them more tangible and give yourself a clear target to work towards. Goals can also help you remain accountable when you are tempted not to study.
Understand why the course is important
You need to ask yourself why you are studying this course and be clear on the benefits and positive effect it will have on your career and life. People who can not see the value of the online programme often lose their motivation to study when things get difficult.
Preparing for the difficulties of learning online
“There will be times when you are going to want to quit your online course”. The obligations toward your job and family may become overwhelming while you are studying. When you feel over whelmed think about what it would mean if you did not complete your course. Rely on friends and family to help you through tough times and motivate you when you are low.
Use available Elearning tools
Online institutions will often provide additional resources and tools that you can use to maximise learning. Get familiar with all the tools before you begin your course.
