10 Learn From Home Tips

Article on - 10 Learn From Home Tips

Studying at home for your certificate or part-time degree? Our 10 tips will help you concentrate, retain information, and ace your tests and assignments!

  1. Stick to a schedule. Sticking to a schedule keeps you productive, organised, and sane, same as timetables did while you were in secondary school.
  2. Make learning a habit. Habits help you hold yourself accountable, while also building up confidence and self-discipline through repetition. Set aside a dedicated time for learning and make a habit of it!
  3. Join a supportive learning community. The internet makes it easy to engage with other learners and build a community online. You can join a Facebook group, start a Whatsapp chat with friends and coursemates, or simply talk to friends and family.
  4. Learn together. Join a group study session on Zoom or take a course together with others.
  5. Set reasonable goals. Set reasonable, achievable goals for yourself. If something feels big, try breaking it down into smaller goals. Don’t think of becoming a data scientist, first think of how to complete your assignments.
  6. Schedule breaks. Remember to add break time and “me time” into your timetable, and be generous with these slots.
  7. Remember to take the time to rest. But, don’t hold yourself strictly to the schedule. Remember that sometimes you just need a break, and that’s ok. Listen to your body to avoid breakdown.
  8. Organise your workspace. There’s some good tips on how to do that here! Clear away clutter, keep your books and learning materials near you, and most importantly, phone on silent!
  9. Share your progress. Last but not least, share your progress with friends, family, and your online community. Keep them in the know so that they can…
  10. Celebrate your learning! You’re doing a great thing in putting in the hours to better yourself. Cheer yourself on, pat yourself on the back, and have fun!
