Feb. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- If you had to take a course in business letter writing, what would you choose - taking a class in person driving all the way to a little school a half hour away, or taking a class online that effectively reduces your commute distance to zero? In a real in-person course, you certainly get personal attention and a lot of actual interaction with your teacher that can help you tackle the mistakes you make, a lot more quickly. But that's not a reason to dismiss an online course in business letter writing either. Online or off-line, you still do get what you pay for. You just need to use different learning strategies.
All you need is to make sure that you put in a little work to make sure that you really absorb the lessons that an online course is trying to teach you. How do you make this happen? Let's take a look at how, shall we ?
You know how making flashcards works, from the time you prepared for your SATs, don't you? The same can work now when you try to learn the rules of business letter writing. Every time you come by a new rule, or suggestions for words to use or ones not to use, you'll find that they are pretty easy to forget. Do yourself a favor and write them down on flashcards to keep with you through the day. Take a look at them from time to time; you'll find that you really do make the most of your online lessons.
There is one little problem with learning online - human nature. The Internet and the computer are complete entertainment devices. After an hour of concentrated learning, it can be easy to tell yourself that you really deserve a break. With so much entertainment available on tap, you can easily find that you've spent the last one hour listening to music or watching videos. You need to constantly refocus and learn your rules of discipline to actually get anywhere with your online learning plans. A good way to work a little discipline into the routine would be to print your lessons out and read them away from the computer and all its attendant distractions UFC 157 Live Stream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-r2CzUVupQ
With the instructor far away, it's often difficult in an online learning environment, to have answered, the questions that come up. Get your instructor's personal e-mail address though, and you should be able to get an answer whenever you need. What is it about a real class that makes learning fun and quick? It is participating in class activities, of course. The students who sit at the back and only learn passively, usually don't do much learning at all. It's not because they aren't interested; it's because they don't often participate all that much in their classroom activities. The same applies for online lessons just the same. Ask questions (once you 've tried to understand something on your own and found yourself unsuccessful). Make suggestions. Look alive.
