Online learning became prevalent with the onset of the global pandemic in March 2020. But there was robust online learning happening at many institutions – including Knox – before that time. While online learning may offer increased flexibility, it has its own challenges.
For an introduction to successful online learning, you can visit the University of Toronto’s Getting Ready for Online website.
For a better set of tools, the Open University in the UK has a free 3-hour course that will help you assess your skills and prepare you for distance/online learning. Topics include:
- How will I find time to study?
- Do I have the right skills for study?
- Do I have the digital skills to be a distance learner?
- Am I ready to learn?
- Do I understand how assessment will help my learning?
