Overview

##

Online learning is likely to be important for you in the future, either at university or in the workplace. Learning online is different to learning in the classroom as it requires different skills. This course will help you to develop those skills, showing you how to learn and communicate effectively in an online environment.

This course is just one of a series about ‘learning online’, which introduces you to the essential skills and tools you need to study effectively online.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for students at schools and colleges. They provide a taster of undergraduate study at the University of Leeds and help students to decide which subject to study at university.

Completion of the courses will also enhance students’ university applications.

The courses can also be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource.

Courses in this collection are also great for people that want an introduction in the specific subjects discussed in each course.

I learnt nothing new, except the way the University of Leeds use technology and the social media to teach in its classroom, that's interesting, but for someone that is not interested to study at this place, this course is not so useful. The second part is a demo how to use some collaborative tools, like Gdocs or Padlet.

I would highly recommend it. Although you have some experience in online work, the course will allow you to discover tools you had never heard about, and pay attention to some details that just because they are obvious, seem to be forgotten in many occasions. It is also a practical course, so, perfect!

Its really a good start to communication skills. Though this one teaches how to apply them online but trust me is best course to everyone. You might find yourself familiar with the techniques taught in ye course but you will gain more of you take to learn the course.

Communicating and Collaborating is an interesting course with many takes. The course shows clearly the importance of communication in every sphere of human endeavour especially where the involvement of others are required for community development.

Good introduction to online learning but trying to get the online course to record that you have finished every page in the whole course and completed the review was a pain.

The course is excellent because it gives the tools and tips to improve the remote and collaborative work. And it’s also free of charges.

Thank you very much!
