How Can I Succeed?
e-Learning is similar to the conventional education you’d get in a typical classroom. There are still distractions that can pop up that you need to ignore and a schedule you need to keep. The most significant difference between the two is the amount of concentration and self-discipline required for you to succeed.
In a real-world classroom, the teacher can tell if you’re paying attention or having problems with the material. In a virtual one, it’s a little more complicated, which is why you must remain focused during your classes. It is vital to ask questions in the live environment or via email so that you fully understand the content. By doing so, you give yourself the highest chance of attaining your goals.
When interacting with your instructor or other classmates, it’s essential to remain as professional as possible as they cannot see your facial expressions or read your body language to know if you meant something different.
For someone to excel in this kind of environment, they need to have strong reading and comprehension skills. They also need to be able to express their thoughts and ideas in writing clearly.
While our instructors will do everything in their power to help you throughout the course, students need to stay on top of their assignments and deadlines. We understand you have a busy schedule and that occasionally, things come up that may interfere with your studies. But to be successful in an online course, you need to devote a great deal of time to studying and schoolwork no matter what the interruption. On average, the estimated time commitment required for e-Learning is roughly three to four hours a day, so we recommend looking at your current schedule to see if you can accommodate this much time before enrolling.
As you will be getting several assignments throughout your course, we suggest you find an area where you won’t be distracted and can concentrate on your work.
It’s essential for students taking online classes from home to have reliable Internet access.
Lastly, having support from a friend, family member or caregiver during your studies can come in handy when you need a little motivation or reassurance.
