Developing Independence as an Online Learner

When students first start learning from home as an online learner, you may hear them utter statements like: “I don’t understand how to do this. I’m so frustrated.” Or perhaps: “Ugh. I’ll do it later. I can get it done really quick.” Maybe even: “Man, this is tough! My old school was so much easier!”

Starting anything new can be a challenge! Becoming an online learner is no different. Learning online takes a different skill set than the traditional face-to-face classroom.

In a traditional school, a student may be taught a lesson for 50 minutes by the teacher pointing out the important information and then the student will have 10-20 minutes of homework.

Online students typically review the content and identify the important information independently.

Having this kind of responsibility may seem daunting, but it can be done! It just requires a different skill set.
