3 things distance learning students can learn from remote workersPosted on 17/07/2019 by Jess O'Connor
Studying From Home has a lot in common with working from home. Both involve high levels of motivation and self-discipline, as well as excellent time management skills.
Here are three things distance learning students can learn from remote workers.
1. Pick up the phone
When working or studying from home, it can be easy to rely too much on email, instant messaging or text.
Instead, carve out time in your schedule to talk to your tutors or your classmates on the phone or via video conferencing software such as Zoom.
Talking on the phone is the closest you can get to face-to-face contact. You can pick up on people’s tone-of-voice, mood, and it’s a much faster way of discussing complicated information.
Plus, it’ll help you feel connected to the world outside your home’s four walls, which is always a bonus!
2. Make sure your tech is reliable
You know what makes it almost impossible to study or work from home? A broken laptop or slow internet speed.
When you choose to study remotely, your technology is important.
While we’re not suggesting you rush out and purchase the latest and greatest laptop, at least make sure your current model is equipped to meet the course requirements.
If you’re not sure what you need, send one of our tutors an email or give us a call – we’ll be more than happy to talk you through the course requirements and help you assess whether your current technology can bear the load.
3. Find out how you study best
Everyone is different. Some people study best first thing in the morning, other people are night owls that come alive after 8 pm.
Figuring out how you study best will be a gamechanger for your productivity. Once you know your ‘best hours’, you can rearrange your schedule to suit, essentially allowing you to get more done in less time.
