Skills for online learning
You may be required to study online by distance instead of face to face. Here are some things you may need to consider.
Learning online is great for flexibility. You can study anywhere you want and any time you want. There is the social flexibility to study when and where you want so you can fit in work and catch up with friends. However, online students tell us that there are different challenges with online learning compared to face-to-face classes. You really need to know yourself well to navigate those challenges. This module was created to make you aware of the challenges of taking an online course. You can complete the module at your own pace and you can return to it whenever you want. You can also start at any topic you wish.
