Reading Time: 3 Minutes
From the Transitions to Work program.
Online courses have become more and more relevant and popular year on year yet despite this not everyone finds them as the most useful approach to learning or even those that do don’t actually approach them in the right manner. Today I’m going toggle you a few pointers on how to make the most of these brilliant tools.
1. Follow the Guidance
Nearly all courses require you to complete exercises as a part of the learning procedure as the help cement the content in your mind as you are actually ‘doing’ something rather than simply reading or listening in. A lot of the time these are very simple, basic activities that appear almost counterproductive to learning if they’re so simple. this is not the case, the reason for these tasks and activities is to cement them practically in your mind so by ensuring you do each and every one and not skipping this where you may think ‘I know how to do this already’ will make a huge difference.
2. Don’t Rush it
One of the easiest things to do when trying to learn anything is to try and race through it as quickly as possible so that you get that completion tick or certificate. this is the opposite of what you should be doing if anything more time should be taken than advised just to ensure your fully grasp the concept being discussed. By completing each section thoroughly you will notice the benefits come the final assignment or after completion as you will have much more comfortable and in depth knowledge of the subject
3. Enjoy it
Learning from courses should be fun, it should be something that interests you or has a profitable end goal for you which you will want to achieve. Obviously not every moment of learning from online scripts and lectures will be enthralling but as a whole you should want to be doing it, if you don’t at the moment maybe you should think about what you are getting out of it and why you started it in the first place.
