5 Tips to Making The Most of eLearning

So you have registered for an eLearning course, now what?

To help you maximise this learning opportunity here our 5 tips to making the most of your eLearning course.

Commit to the process

Be aware that learning online is not about an easier method but a more convenient method. Just like regular learning you have got to make a commitment to it so you maximise the opportunity.

Make a commitment to:
- Giving it the time it needs
- Attending the program as required
- Focus when studying
- The whole process

Once you have made the commitment you are half way there!

Make space

It is important that you have a dedicated place where you study. It doesn’t matter whether it be your lounge, study or bedroom, just make sure you can focus and you won’t be distracted.

A key to successful online study is routine and a regular space where you know you can sit down and progress is important. Make sure the people around you know that you need this time and space and ask them to respect that.

Another good habit to get into is turn off you phone and social media when you study so that you are not being interrupted by the latest tweet.

Have a plan

Creating an eLearning study plan is always a good idea.

Make sure you:

Include a calendar: include exams, deadlines and any relevant dates.

Are organised: don’t leave your next assignment till the night before. Plan for it.
Set timeframes: before you start each piece of work plan the time it will take you and try and stick to it.
Stick to the plan: get in the habit of sticking to the eLearning plan. This will keep you keep on top of all the work.  

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

As much as you need to spend the time discovering answers for yourself if you are really struggling it is best to speak up. If you don’t it will result in a lack of motivation, falling behind and even not completing your eLearning course.

It is a good idea to build a relationship with your online teacher so that when you do contact them they know who you are and a bit about you.

Take breaks

It is important that you get into the habit of taking regular study breaks.

You will struggle to make the most of your study if you are too tired and worn out. When taking a break try and get away from your space and get some fresh air or a drink. Even such things as a walk or some physical activity can really help. This will mean that you can go back to your study refreshed and ready to keep on working.
