1-Set a routine:
Either it’s online course or in person study program a consistent routine is essential to get the results of the program or course you’re taking. After enrolling for a course the first thing you should do is to design a time table and follow it properly. Remind yourself about your goal every day, e.g. if you are taking a certification course remind yourself about the day when you will become a certified individual. Similarly if you’re taking a Quran course and you’re on initial i.e. courses like Noorani Qaida or Basics of Quran, remind yourself about the day when you will have completed the whole Quran.
2-Have a dedicated Space:
Having a dedicated space will help you to focus more on what you are learning. Setting up a dedicated space will not only save your time but will also save you from the hassle of finding suitable spot for every online session or class. Try to make this space distraction free, make it on some corner where there is minimum noise and interruption. If it’s in your room try to make it separate from your bed and sofa. Try to have a comfortable position. This space can be your study table, library or any peaceful spot in your home.
3-Evaluate your-self regularly:
Set goals for everyday regarding your learning and evaluate yourself at the end of the day. Review your activities and calculate how much of your target have you achieved. Make a schedule where you have written your daily targets about your home works, assignments and tasks and mark the things you are done with. For example if you are taking a Quran course and you are currently on basic courses like Noorani Qaida and having 2 exercises a day every day when you are done with your exercise mark a tick against it on your schedule.
Don’t be afraid to evaluate yourself if you have some slow days keep reviewing your activities this will help you to figure out the reasons due to which you lagged behind. Moreover, this evaluation will keep you motivated to achieve your targets and to keep the pace consistent.
Try not to be a passive learner either its online learning or in person classes. Always try to have the notes of the lecture you are taking. Sit with a page or notebook whenever you are having a class or online lecture and jot down all the important points of the lecture. This will help you a lot in future when you would have to revise your lessons. This would also help you to memorize important things of the lecture.
If you are not having lectures or tutorials and you are just reading an online blog still try to have a paper and pen with you note down all the important points of the blog so that next you don’t need to read the whole blog.
Try not to start many things simultaneously, instead prioritize your goals and start with the most important and after completing it start the other one. Multi-tasking can not only frustrate you but can also affect the productivity of your brain.If you will do one thing at a time you would be able to absorb it more and can have more productive results.
