Making online learning fit for you.

Apart from digitizing content and replicating traditional classroom interactions, online learning institutions such as AMA Online Education (AMA OEd) also encourage varying styles of learning that works best for students and educators.

AMA OEd shares insights on how institutions and students can accommodate different styles of learning in a virtual setting.

While self-guided, online learning classes are also interactive and allow students to ask questions or clarify anything about the subject. This creates a conversation that benefits other students who stand to gain from the teacher's verbal explanation. Lectures are also recorded and taped to help students go over them as much as they need to.

Listening to podcasts beyond classroom lectures is also a good way to deepen understanding about lessons learned in class. Discussing lectures with others, or to one's self can also help facilitate better understanding.

Part of AMA OEd's learning management system (LMS) is an extensive e-library filled with e-books that can help students comprehensively research on class topics. These e-books are usually rich with images that help students simplify course modules. Online lectures also have PowerPoint counterparts that are readily accessible for students.

In order to get ahead in lessons, or prepare for exams, students can opt to watch information videos, or even prepare flash cards for review. They can also stand to gain from organizing notes by using multiple colors and diagrams to compartmentalize thoughts for various subjects. Writing and color coding notes creates visual layouts that can help better recall online lectures.

Online schools balance theory and practice by giving assignments that encourage group collaboration and field research. While subjects are taken within the comforts of one's home, there are certain course topics that will require collaboration for reports and presentations--be it through online or on-ground.

AMA OEd prides itself in being able to balance online and offline courses in order to create well-rounded students. Students in this program are able to effectively manage both offline and online nuances in a learning environment, allowing them to learn from experiences on both scenarios.

Students who opt to take full online courses benefit from mobile learning--where they can learn while pursuing other activities. For example, having the ability to exercise while reading a course module can create an experience that enable better information flow.
