The Open University has compiled some great tips and tricks on how to get the most from learning online. The OU's Skills for OU Study website covers all of the essential things you'll need to know to get the most from studying online: from time management, to how to take notes to understanding how you learn (your learning style)...this site pretty much has it all.

Chances are you're either new to online learning, have never taken a university-level course or have been away from higher education for a few years. If this is the case, think of the OU's website as an inline learning toolkit - a toolkit that will help you get the most from studying online.

Online learning requires a different mindset from campus-based learning. Understanding this will greatly improve your experience of online learning and general - and your experience with Social Media U in particular. Online learners require focus, dedication, determination and perseverance because online liners  need to be self-motivating.
