Online learning

Top tips for learning online.

Online learning

Online learning provides flexibility and allows you to learn at a time and pace that works for you. 

There are lots of online courses out there, so follow these top tips to get the best results.

  1. Find something you enjoy
    If it’s something that’s interesting and relevant to you, you’re more likely to succeed.
  2. Check the small print
    There are lots of free courses advertised, but it’s worth looking over the company Ts&Cs before signing up. Is there a fee if you leave the course early? Is there a charge for a final exam?
  3. Timings
    If it’s a self-directed course, treat it like you would if it were in-person. Schedule a set time every week that you’ll log on and when you know you’re less likely to be distracted. Check when any reviews or assignments are due and book time in for these.
  4. “You’re on mute!”
    Test all your equipment and course links beforehand. If you’re doing a video call, you should be able to change your background filter.
  5. Data checking
    If you use Pay as you Go, there are several mobile data checkers online that’ll give you an idea of how much data you’ll need per activity. If you learn best by watching a video, check how much data this’ll use up.
