Tips on doing any online courses:

1. Commit yourself to finish the course

2. Try and find some quiet time when you are relaxed and undisturbed.

3. Allocate a set amount of time for each session and do not log off until you have finished. It could be a little as 15 minutes or as long as you like.

4. In most courses there are short tests at the end of each ‘chapter’. Try and finish after a test, it
is great to end a session with a sense of achievement.

5. Do not be daunted by the imagined complexity or difficulty of the course. Every course is in
easy steps which you can re-do until you understand. You are in control. Take as long as
you need, there is no pressure.

6. Finally, do not feel that you are left to do your courses alone. Many courses include a
mentoring service. This means that if you get stuck you can ask someone any time, day or
night, seven days a week. Just log onto the specially provided messenger box and chat
with your live tutor. If your course does not include a mentor service, call us to order one.
