Tips on eLearning


Plan your e-learning sessions
It is important to set aside time for e-learning to avoid possible distractions and conflicts with other responsibilities. Although e-learning can be done anywhere and/or anytime, a routine would bring consistency to your learning thus increasing knowledge retention. Designate a specific time for e-learning.
Set realistic learning goals
You need to balance your e-learning with your national service obligations. Do not overwhelm yourself with too many courses, do what is within your limits. Aim to complete a course in a reasonable amount of time.
Participate actively
Take part in discussion forums and chat sessions, share your learning experience with other students who are doing the same course as you. Exchange ideas and encourage each other, make new friends. Online learning does not mean that you learn alone. The more you put into the course the more you get out of it.
Take Short Breaks
You are in charge, take 5 minutes if you feel your concentration level dropping. Get up from your seat and stretch.
Make use of all available resources
Use resource libraries, other websites, online instructors/advisors/mentors/tutors and other alternate sources of information to follow up on what you have learned.
Reflect on What You have Learned
Go through what you have covered in the lesson after you have completed it. If possible, try applying it. The more you go through the information or put into practice, the more it will be retained.
Share What You’ve Learned
Share your new found knowledge with the people around you. You will understand concepts better when you are able to teach someone else. Your learning experience will be enriched at the same time.
