Find a friend to do it with you and commit to weekly study sessions.
Online learning is usually lonely and when you get stuck you are really stuck — having friends to work through problems together is critical.
Although you're probably tempted to choose with more than 1, start with 1 class and finish it before moving on.
The first class is the hardest because you need to learn how to learn online and also learn the material.
Block out 2–3 hours Monday through Friday for classwork.
It’s not realistic to think that you can just put it off to the weekend because you may hit a block or be tired from working all week.
Don’t check email. Don’t pick up your phone or text.
It’s so easy to spend an hour messaging or checking Instagram, so don’t even give yourself the opportunity to get distracted.
Tell yourself you will focus on it for 15 mins.
During the 15 mins, you’re so focused on working for 15 mins that you won’t get distracted; and after 15 mins you’ve made sufficient progress to be ‘in the zone.’
... and pause/rewind during sections you don’t understand.
Because you don’t get to ask questions, it’s important that you train yourself to fully understand one section before moving on.
A lot of times the lectures/handouts don’t explain something well.
It’s best to get a book to get a second explanation because there are no teachers or course assistants to ask.
It’s easy to think that you shouldn’t have missed the dumb mistake, but often your process for problem solving can be dramatically improved.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
