Hello friends, during this pandemic, online classes are widely chosen as a means of seeking knowledge without having to leave the house. There are so many online classes to offer, both in terms of subjects and skills. Well, for those of you friends who want to take online classes, below are 7 things to consider before taking classes. With careful consideration, the online classes that are followed are expected to run smoothly.

  • Things to Look for When Taking Online Classes
  1. Selecting Materials on Target

The first thing to consider before taking an online class is the class material. The choice of online classes must be according to your interests, so that knowledge achievement is also maximized. Don’t just take online classes without knowing what the material is. If you go to a course institution, ask in as much detail as possible the material that you will get when you take the online class you have chosen.

02.Ensure you have a stable internet connection

Connection is the primary thing in taking online classes, without an internet connection, you will not be able to take online classes. It’s just an online class, you definitely need an internet connection. However, it’s not just an internet connection, yes, there is still a continuation, which must be stable.

Several online class organizing institutions provide live streaming material which requires a stable internet connection. If it is unstable, you will lose a lot of material due to buffering alone. There are also online class organizers who provide material in the form of videos to be downloaded and studied before the material takes place through group chats. Whatever the form of the material, the internet connection must be stable, yes!

03.Quality and Complete Materials

Before you actually decide to take online classes according to your interests, first survey the online class organizers that you know about. In point one, it has been explained that you must choose the material according to the target.

In this third-pound, you are advised to be selective in choosing the material! Because some online class organizers only give the lure of super material but in its application, it doesn’t even meet expectations.

04.Choosing a Tutor that is Fun and Easy to Understand 

The tutor is the most intimate subject the student has to deal with. A tutor is a teacher who teaches the material in an online class that you choose. It is through the tutor that a lesson will reach the student. If you choose the wrong tutor, you will feel uncomfortable.

Instead of getting a lesson, don’t even get in at all and be boring. Find an exciting tutor, because online classes are very boring without a tutor who can bring the atmosphere.

05.Videos or Interactive Materials

When you take online classes, you will usually be given videos and materials as well. So you don’t get bored anymore, look for online classes that provide interactive videos or materials. This means that you do not only read the content of the material, but you subconsciously feel that you are interacting with the material in it.

06.Alumni Testimonials

Must be familiar with testimonials, right? You must look for testimonials from the online class organizers that you are participating in. Well, usually institutions that already exist or are well known will display alumni testimonials. Pay attention to the reviews from various alumni, friends, you will know the advantages and disadvantages there.

07.Look for Online classes with Experienced Tutors

Wow, talking about tutors seems endless, pal, how come? The tutor is the core subject of learning. Therefore, look for a really experienced tutor with already high-flying hours. No need to look for tutors from university graduates, but look for experienced and proven tutors.
