How You Learn
Learning occurs most effectively in a cycle of four steps:
The VARK approach, which focuses on learning through different senses:
Visual learners prefer images, charts and graphs.
Aural learners learn better by listening.
Reading learners learn better through written language.
Kinesthetic learners learn through doing and practicing.
A goal is a result we intend to reach mostly through our own actions.
Planning ahead is the single best way to stay focused and motivated to reach your goals.
It is important to realize how you approach time, everyone has to develop effective strategies for managing, prioritizing and dealing with time.
Calendar planners and to-do lists are effective ways to organize your time.
Online courses are self-paced and asynchronous and some involve live audio connections via Webcasts.
Success in an online course requires commitment and motivation.
E-mail can be an effective form of communication and interaction with instructors and other students.
Online networking can help to build relationships, gain information, and stay in touch.
