What do you like most about your virtual classes?
Even though we’re apart, I’m enjoying completing the virtual classes online as it’s an easy layout to follow. The workload is easier and it allows flexibility to finish everything on time without feeling overloaded and rushed.
What is your best study tip for online learning?
Always try to understand the learning practices and expectations. Always ask for help when you need it! Take study breaks when you feel overwhelmed. Review your work at least 3 times to make sure it is correctly written. Work with your classmates to help each other to stay motivated.
What is the biggest challenge with online learning?
The biggest challenge is when the internet crashes and everything is slow or lagging. It gets frustrating at times.
Share your favourite moment from your virtual classes
There is a student in my class who always brings her dog come to class which is really nice.
