Note-Taking Skills

One of the benefits of distance learning is that you have all the course material available in one environment including reading assignments, discussion boards, instructor announcements, presentations, and lectures. If you forget something, you can simply return to your university portal to retrieve the data needed. On the other hand, in an on-campus environment, note taking is a must. The notes you acquire can make or break your grade. If quizzes or tests are mostly based on note taking from classroom discussions, try to take notes on main points, then go back and review what was covered in class before you leave to ensure that if any questions arise, you can clarify them with your instructor. A good habit is to rewrite your notes in a more organized fashion once you get home. This not only helps you make better sense of the material, but it allows you to add an extra hour of study.  Learn More:
