Techniques to Help e-Learning

Written by Catherine Franz

e-Learning is doubling yearly. Classes, e-courses, e-books on how-to and what-to appear byrepparttar thousands online weekly. In-person seminars and workshops are limited to location and access. e-Learning allows easy access, creation, and international distribution to a whole new world of experiences -- negative and positive.

Avid learners now feel like there is a smorgasbord laid out before them. It’s like having teachers and trainers crowded into your den. Yet, no sooner do you buy one e-learning material, start reading, and another enticement grabs your attention that is suppose to be even better, even grander. The flow of new material never seems to end -- a high percentage poorly written.

Online learning is now starting its climb uprepparttar 109320 product maturity bell curve. This means that buyer’s dollars are voting, demanding, more well thought-out and written material. As an avid on-line reader, I let out a deep sigh of relief and look forward for this next wave to occur acrossrepparttar 109321 board.

Studying on a computer screen requires different uses ofrepparttar 109322 mind and eyes. Normally we read in a scanning method when browsingrepparttar 109323 Net. Now, with studying, reading will require more deliberate and careful. This increases material understanding, comprehension, critical evaluation and practical application.

Adults who have been away from educational studying for awhile, will need to review againrepparttar 109324 scope of skills needed to study again. Ones they learned back in school. For some just thinking about studying again makes them crawl underrepparttar 109325 bed covers. Those with less break time since their studying days,repparttar 109326 skills will return much quicker. If good study skills were not previously learned, there will be some struggle or frustration that might be experiences while learningrepparttar 109327 correct methods and creating new habits. For them it will be like creating a cake from scratch instead from a package mix.

Note taking

Save your printer ink. Don't print outrepparttar 109328 material, rely on your notes and your memory. Taking ink-created notes is just as important with e-Learning as in any other type of learning environment. Yes, I did recommend using good old ink and paper. Note taking isn't just set aside becauserepparttar 109329 learning material is online. Taking handwritten notes is a key element in moving new short-term information into long-term accessibility.

If you would like to have a checkpoint or a measuring stick on what you are retaining, take note taking torepparttar 109330 next level. You will want to previewrepparttar 109331 material, as mentioned next, then begin reading and taking notes. After this, take a break, return, and then type up your notes. While you are typing add information that you remember fromrepparttar 109332 material or what you have learned from other sources. Add whatever is swirling in your mind. This is best way to measure what you have retained and what is still missing. If there is something in your notes that doesn't make sense, then you will know what you need to reread and startrepparttar 109333 process again within that smaller scope. You can even ask further in-depth questions (see below).


Review and scan allrepparttar 109334 material. Ifrepparttar 109335 material is large, scanrepparttar 109336 entire area, then return to one smaller section at a time and chunk it. Read titles, subheadings, and spend a few extra minutes on any diagrams or memory aids. Look for patterns inrepparttar 109337 material. Ifrepparttar 109338 material is well-written you will always discover one or more patterns. Patterns help mind-visual-understanding associations. Is there a quick summary atrepparttar 109339 end of each chapter? If yes, read this during your preview. Previewing is important whetherrepparttar 109340 new material feels comfortable or is stretching you.

The Remote Viewers' Matrix Explained

Imagine a huge library with every book about every person, place, thing and event inrepparttar world. A place that has recorded everything that has happened sincerepparttar 109319 beginning of time and movement. Everything, meaningrepparttar 109320 creation of a pencil throughrepparttar 109321 birth, development and growth of every person and every other living thing. What if we stored all of this information like books or blueprints in a place? That would mean that while I am writing this and while you are reading it, another event is being added to our books. The event of you reading this article is now being recorded and stored into your personal blueprint, your individual book of your life. That would mean that this library is very dynamic and that it records a world of information and stores it in a very static way. Once recorded, it is there forever filed away in a huge memory bank. This is what we call "The Matrix". Sounds a little scary in a way, doesn't it? To think that everything you do is recorded as an event and then stored away forever in a book!

Over one hundred years ago, world renowned Swiss Psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Jung developed a theory about a giant library that he called "the Collective Unconscious." But how did he discover this? Dr Carl Jung was always fascinated by dreams. Through out his life he studied his own dreams andrepparttar 109322 dreams of his patients. He extractedrepparttar 109323 universal symbols fromrepparttar 109324 dreams and uncovered their meaning. Once he discoveredrepparttar 109325 meaning ofrepparttar 109326 symbols withinrepparttar 109327 context ofrepparttar 109328 dream, he heldrepparttar 109329 answer to their problems; He understoodrepparttar 109330 crux of their conflict. This would serve as an extremely valuable tool for a doctor to curerepparttar 109331 complex psychosis of his patients. Dr. Jung was considered a miracle worker in his day (and even today). He could curerepparttar 109332 most difficult cases and then he could explain how they had become ill. He knew more about his patients then they knew about themselves. How could he do this? He never claimed to be psychic or clairvoyant.

Dr. Jung had found a way to tap intorepparttar 109333 collective unconscious by way ofrepparttar 109334 individual's unconscious mind; Jung definedrepparttar 109335 unconscious mind asrepparttar 109336 part ofrepparttar 109337 human psychic apparatus that does not ordinarily enterrepparttar 109338 individual's awareness. It isrepparttar 109339 part ofrepparttar 109340 mind that is manifested especially by slips ofrepparttar 109341 tongue, dissociated acts and in dreams. He then declared thatrepparttar 109342 Collective Unconscious containsrepparttar 109343 whole spiritual heritage of mankind's evolution, born anew inrepparttar 109344 brain structure of every individual person. Carl Jung was said to be a brilliant man. He had access to knowledge about others who could not access it for themselves. He had discoveredrepparttar 109345 wizard hiding behindrepparttar 109346 curtains.
