Thousands of professionals struggle daily to keep up with the competitive job market. Irrespective of your qualification, you will still find someone who is a step ahead, vying for the same position as you.
There is no doubt that competition is fierce!
Online courses make it easy to stay up-to-date with the stress of commuting. However, professionals often make some mistakes when enrolling for these professional courses.
Let’s dive in and take a look at the common mistakes and how you can avoid them:
- Not staying away from distractions: One of the biggest mistakes is allowing yourself to be distracted. There is this misconception that because it is a virtual class, you can do as you wish. However, online courses need to be handled with the seriousness of a conventional class. You should keep away your phone and any other form of distraction.
- Not taking notes: It is easy to get carried away as you listen to the class and forget to take notes. Do not depend totally on the resources/ materials provided. Ensure that you always have a pen and paper to take notes and write your questions as they come, so you don’t forget after the class.
- Procrastination: This is a very big challenge for online learning. The feeling of independence and knowing that you can review what you have learnt over time makes you relax. You tend to push reviewing your notes forward and might not get to take a second look for a long time.
- Opting for an online course without the required technology: Delivery of online courses are usually done using high-speed internet connection. If you enrol but have low internet speed, then you will not be able to participate and attend your course.
- Not managing time effectively: The notion that you are taking an online course makes it easy to assume that you can get your assignments done at any time. However, most students run out of time and end u with assignments undone.
Care should be taken and your sense of responsibility as a professional should be at the forefront if you intend to enrol in online courses. What mistake have you made while taking an online course?
