#OLsuccess day 3: What makes you a successful online learner?

Today we will be asking you to reflect on what makes you succeed online. We’ll be asking questions like these:

  • What helps you stay organised when you are learning online?
  • What helps you stay focused and engaged when you are learning online? What kind of activities, assignments & social features?
  • What is the most important habit of a successful online learner, do you think?
  • What devices do you use to engage in online learning and why do they work for you?
  • Is there anything about you that helps you to be a good online learner? Do these things apply equally in face to face settings?

As you can see there’s a lot to cover. But don’t despair: our online learners already have some strategies for organising ideas from different streams of media. You’ll have to stay tuned to hear them 😉
