Study tips for online learning

online learning

The opportunity to study online means that you can continue to pursue the qualifications you are after even during the COVID-19 pandemic. When you choose the right training provider, online learning offers an innovative, effective and supportive way of studying your chosen course.

With a few study tips and the right attitude, you can make the most out of these unusual times and be qualified before you know it! Ready to get started with online learning? These study tips will help:

1. Create a study zone

A dedicated space where you can study with minimal distractions will give you a solid starting point for your online learning experience. Natural light, a comfortable chair and somewhere to keep everything plugged in and charged is ideal.

2. Make a plan

Rather than going in with only good intentions, plan how you will spend your study time in advance. Allocate how long you want to spend on specific areas and stick to it.

3. Know yourself

Are you a better learner in the morning or do you find the evening works well for you? This may depend on your existing work and family commitments, so structure your online study time in a way that is suited to your life. For some students, the right kind of music can help them to study more effectively, while others prefer to study in silence. Get to know what works for you and find environments that suit.

4. Minimise distractions

In our fast-paced, technology-focused world, distractions are everywhere. Get extra productive by putting your phone away or better yet, switching it off for the period when you need to study.

5. Reach out

Online learning should not mean unsupported learning. When you study online with Selmar, you get a dedicated trainer who is there for you from start to finish of your course. Your trainer is committed to your success, sharing their own knowledge and experience to improve your learning.

6. Care for yourself

Looking after yourself is vital for learning and optimal functioning. Make sure you are doing the right things for yourself. This means getting enough sleep, eating healthy meals and exercising regularly. Don’t forget to reward yourself with the things you love too!
