How to enjoy online classes a #thread of tips that have worked for me

1. Set aside time: its online, but its still school. Respect your online learning environment like you are in a classroom and set aside time that you can concentrate undistracted
2. Use the widest screen you have. Some classes I take on my laptop, but others I take in our home cinema. Widescreen changes up the learning experience 🤗
3. Use discussion boards. I use discussion boards to talk to my professors and colleagues.
Great way to get the social experience of uni without having ro travel. Some of my colleagues I chat to on whatsapp.
4. Depends on your budget, but sometimes I travel for particular modules....new environment etc
5. Buy the recommended books. Compliment your studies by reading textbooks to get greater depth
6. Find the earliest opportunity to apply new skills. An advantage of studying whilst you work is you can apply skills immediately.

Set up a workshop even if its just for the corpers in your office to teach your newly learned skills.
7. Tweet. I quote someone my professors on twitter as it helps reinforce my knowledge because of the discussions that ensue
8. Invest in fast internet. Nothing as frustrating as slow internet when you are trying to complete a long course.
