Top 5 Ways To Cope With Online Education Challenges

There is no doubt that online education comes with many benefits. Such learning methods give students more time and freedom to study on their own terms. However, with more freedom comes more responsibility. Thus, learners have to manage their education and progress on their own. They also have to find the right place and time to study, maintain their motivation and keep their focus strong. All of these factors can turn online education into a challenge. Yet, there is a way. Here Are Five Tips On Coping With Online Education Challenges: 1. Create a productive environment A student needs to have a dedicated study space. Such a place will be your designated study area with a desk and everything else that you need. Having one area to work in will optimize your study process. Hence, you will be more efficient and productive. Also, you can work to eliminate any distractions in this place. So, you can keep your focus better and concentrate on what’s in front of you.  Digital literacy is also a key here. You don’t want to waste time hopelessly searching for needed information online or struggling to download materials. Thus, you better work on your computer skills first. Make sure you have everything you need set up and ready for your classes. Make a trial run for the apps or software you use for classes. Improve your mic and sound setting. Arrange everything before starting.  2. Stay organized Good time management skills are one way to success here. Of course, that’s often the first stumbling point for new timers in online education. Usually, a school or teachers do most of the work for you here. For example, students come to school at a specific time. They also have teachers checking their homework and expecting to fulfill certain tasks at home.  However, when you study online, things go differently. You don’t have anyone to control or monitor your work. This is on you. Each student needs strong organizational and self-discipline skills to succeed. After all, we are not fully used to studying by ourselves.  For instance, learners need to create a working schedule. Thus, a student should have a designated time to study. Also, with online learning, students should develop personal study plans. Such a plan should include study goals, learning objectives, examination points, etc. Moreover, learners should also monitor such a plan all by themselves, too.  Related: Online Schools the Only Source for Personalized Education 3. Keep your motivation strong The traditional form of learning has teachers to guide you through your classes and progress. However, in online education, you have to combine the roles of an instructor, guide, and supervisor. Needless to say, such roles can be tough on inexperienced students. As a result, many may start toying with procrastination or long study breaks. Overall, keeping your motivation to learn and work hard all by yourself can be challenging.  You can try setting clear goals for each class, week, or month. This way, you always work towards something specific. You are motivated to complete your goals. Such an easy trick will build up your confidence. Thus, with each study session, you will feel like you’re achieving something. Also, having goals will help you monitor your performance. Thus, you know exactly how well you’re doing and what areas should be improved.  4. Adapt to a new learning style The remote study is quite different from in-person classes. There is no traditional classroom setup, no scheduled study hours, or precise plan for each class. For the most part, it’s just you and your computer. Some people can feel uncomfortable or even unmotivated to study like this. However, you can and should adjust. Hence, you can try various new learning methods and approaches to adapt to this new learning style. Thus, you can try different study techniques. For example, most techniques help you break down your study hours into shorter periods of time with scheduled breaks. Thus, you can study in short sessions of 25 minutes with 5-minute breaks.  You may also diversify where and how you receive information. Thus, with online learning, you can enjoy various forms of learning, from watching documentaries to using learning apps online. See what format fits your needs and preferences the most.  5. Seek help  Online learning doesn’t exclude help from peers or teachers. Don’t try to do everything on your own. The Internet, for one, is a perfect place to seek guidance and assistance. For instance, seek help online when you can’t keep up with the workload. Professional writing services like writingpapersucks.com and similar are always there to give you a hand.  It’s okay to need to feel like entrusting parts of homework to someone else at times. You already carry many responsibilities by studying online by yourself. We all need a break sometimes.  Also, you can look for communities online interested in your subject. Hence, you won’t feel that alone in your struggles. There you can find support, encouragement, and learning tips.  Bottom line Online learning shouldn't stop you from achieving your dreams. It’s just another learning method you can easily master with time and practice. Sure, it can look different at first. Yet, you will prevail with determination, motivation, and some help from the tips above. Good luck!

Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Web Marketers

Getting along with a web marketer is about as easy as negotiating your client’s settlement over a picnic outside the courthouse. Some people are that easy to work with, but they’re about as common as an 8-1 ruling in the Supreme Court. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="800"] image credit:localang.com[/caption] For lawyers, web marketing is what the French call a devoir — a “have to.” Most of us would rather wash our hands of it. After all, we went for a JD, not an MBA or a marketing degree. We have a whole desk full of case files and ethical obligations demanding our time. Marketing is hitching for a spot in the backseat, at best. But the Web is where the clients are. Internet marketers are the new rainmakers. We need them to keep the soil moist, so to speak. In today’s marketplace, Google is the ground from which law firms grow. The trick is to find a marketing firm that can get the job done at the right price… while keeping our blood pressure below the call-an-ambulance level. That’s easier said than done, but here’s some advice. Five Commandments for Keeping the Peace with a Web Marketer 1. Slow and Steady You know what they say — it wins the race. SEO is not an impatient person’s game. Top 10 search results are not achieved overnight. Sure, you might see a blip here and there, but if you’re looking for instant gratification, you’re searching in vain. Think of it as the stock market. You’re investing for long-term gain. 2. Micromanagement is a killer: Attempting to micromanage your marketing will put you and your marketer in that blood pressure danger zone. You’re the lawyer. They’re the web gurus. You each have jobs to do, so stick to those. It’ll do wonders for the relationship. 3. Know what you’re paying for:  Legal web marketing isn’t exactly inexpensive. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Just know what you’re paying for. A good marketing firm will offer itemized transparency for their services, and that’ll keep you from feeling resentful about any “phantom charges.” 4. Don’t get emotional: This isn’t “Dr. Phil.” Your relationship with your web marketer means everything, but that relationship should be built on performance, dependability, and communication — not personality. Trust is important, and it takes time, but you should assess the firm’s effectiveness in the services they provide, not the extent to which you “like” them as people. Oh, and the Golden Rule applies here too — treat your marketers with the courtesy and respect you expect from them. 5. Work with good people This is especially important in the legal arena. So much of web marketing is content-based; but as attorneys, we have to be careful about whom we allow writing about the law on our behalf. Stick with experienced and highly credentialed marketers, preferably those who are able to have your content written by licensed attorneys. The State Bar will thank you for it (in the form of zero discipline for marketing blunders). Here again, you get what you pay for. Need Web Marketing Advice for Attorneys? Ask. As the old saying goes, you don’t know what you don’t know. If you need web marketing advice for attorneys, ask around. Maybe some of your law school friends practicing in other jurisdictions can share their experiences. A simple conversation can shed real insight. You might be surprised by how much you’ll learn from the web marketers themselves. Ask them to educate you. Most are more than willing to elaborate on their history, their best practices, and their approach to client management. Working with web marketers isn’t always easy, but take these tips to heart and you’ll see long-term success (instead of simply seeing red).
