Make the most of your online experience

How do you get the most out of your eLearning ?

Top tips
Tip 1 – Be disciplined with your time.

Allocate set times in the week for study time. This can fit round your life, if you work full time. Setting a regular time aside each day to help you complete your course within the time-frame you set.

Tip 2 – Have an end goal

There’s nothing more motivating than a deadline. Set a deadline that cannot be broken so that you have no choice but to complete the course on time.

Tip 3 – Do your homework

There are lots of RYA books designed to help you pass your course or exam which explains things really simply and helps reinforce the information you are learning about. eBooks are great too – you can book mark your reading material, write and save notes and search content. Some material includes animations, for example watching a lit buoy flash white three times within a period of five or ten seconds, is much easier to remember when seen than when read about.

Tip 4 – Read all the instructions thoroughly

The instructions are really clear but allow yourself the time to read carefully through the material to avoid wasting time and making mistakes.

Tip 5 – Need Help?

The student pack and online course are really good and has all the equipment you need to complete your learning but there may be the odd time when you need a steer. If you are struggling, an instructor is on hand to help you get the end result you are looking for. Even though you may not need to ask for help it is comforting to know he is there.
