How do online courses work?
The course will clearly state its learning objectives and a clear breakdown of the content provided to meet those objectives.
Typically, you will learning by watching videos, listening to audio and reading supporting articles. You may well be set additional assignments, exercises or challenges as part of the content. You are also likely to have short quizzes and tests along the way to help you check you have understood your learning.
You are able to pose questions to your trainer, or to fellow students, and start discussions on relevant issues. You are also able to discuss issues privately with your trainer if you prefer.
It has been said that three things matter most in online courses: quality of the material covered, engagement of the trainer and interaction among the students. In reality, the same issues that make or break more traditional classroom based sessions.
Online courses provide great learning solutions that can really help the time and cost challenges so many face. An online course may be the sole learning solution, or it may be part of a more blended learning approach.
