How to Learn Online: Getting Started

Jay Rixon, The Open University

Embrace the opportunities that online learning offers.

Since Covid-19, there has been an increased interest and in some cases, a necessity to move learning online.

This course draws on the expertise of the The Open University – a global leader in online learning. You will explore online learning and the wide-ranging benefits it brings to learners.

You’ll discover the skills required for online study and evaluate your own study skillset. You’ll also examine how students form online communities and how they benefit from flexible study arrangements while still being supported by dedicated tutors.

Online learning takes advantage of technology to simulate or improve upon traditional methods of teaching. You’ll be introduced you to some of these teaching methods, including looking at two periods of European history, teaching chemistry through the online OpenScience Laboratory and using free apps to practise writing Chinese characters.

If you are considering, or new to online learning, this short course offers you the perfect starting point to prepare you for your online learning journey.
