Learning to eLearn

In a time where we are more connected through technology than we have ever been, eLearning is just another advancement that has been created for both students and companies. But what is eLearning?

According elearningnc.gov, to eLearning, or electronic learning, is “learning utilizing electronic technologies to access educational curriculum outside of a traditional classroom. In most cases, it refers to a course, program or degree delivered completely online.”

eLearning can be delivered to students through the use of computers, tablets, laptops, and even mobile phones. eLearning is not limited to just school, however. It also can be utilized for training and teaching purposes.

Many of the country’s school districts plan to begin the fall semester online-only. With the current events causing many schools to switch to online learning, both parents and students may both need guidance through these new classroom experiences. To make the best of this situation, here are some tips to help you adapt to learning from home.

The environment you immerse yourself in can be one of your biggest distractions. It’s important that you feel comfortable in your space. It should be quiet and have minimal clutter.

Restricting or cutting back on your device use may be a strategy that works for those who have difficulty focusing. Extensive use of electronics such as phones and tablets can be associated with health issues, such as obesity and depression. Small amounts of daily screen time can be beneficial.

Some students may find it tasking to sit through an entire lecture. This gives you a great reason to utilize recorded lectures! Take breaks. 30 minutes into your lecture, get up, stretch, walk around. Take 5-10 minutes to refresh yourself, then sit back down to focus. Allowing time for exercise before you are expected to focus on learning might be a good idea. Exercise is one of the best stress relievers and is a natural way to prevent anxiety. It could be a great way to get in the correct headspace before a class. Consider standing during your online courses, as many people often have more success standing rather than sitting.

Creating a schedule that is the same day to day will allow a smooth transition into eLearning. Research shows that students who have higher GPAs are usually better at time management. Our lives love structure, so try to manage your time with a set schedule.

Instead of jumping right into a set schedule, you should first make small adjustments. Try to get yourself on the same schedule every day and stick to it. That means the same wake-up time and same wind-down time. Start schoolwork at the same hour each day in order to form a routine.

Each and every student is different, and it’s useful to find out what learning style best suits your needs. At the end of each week or every other week, take the time to step back and evaluate your schedule. Look at how you spent your time each day, what areas you need to dedicate more time to and where you are spending too much time. Then, decide how long each night you should be spending on your work and which nights should be dedicated to which classes. Take a look at what habits are benefiting you and which are hindering you. Adjust accordingly.

Tweaking your schedule may be necessary as the class days pass by. If you find yourself struggling with certain classes or assignments, try new ways to spend more time working on that assignment/subject. Find your “peak time” or the time when you are most productive. Then, save your most difficult assignments for that time! This will encourage productivity.

Lastly, stay social while social distancing. Interacting with others not only keeps your mind stimulated and increases overall happiness, but it will help you find the support you may need. Utilizing Zoom or Skype is a great option. Students can work together and offer classmates help with subjects they may be struggling with. Emails, class chats, and discussions are other ways to get that social interaction. These are all great methods to find support.

Although eLearning may be brand new to some and it can be very intimidating, it can provide so many benefits that traditional classrooms cannot. Creating flexible schedules and breaks, self-pacing, and finding what works for you are opportunities all associated with eLearning. With the range of benefits, it gives to students, along with accommodating students and their families to keep everyone safe during a pandemic, eLearning has been widely accepted and appreciated among parents, teachers, and students across the country and the world.

Businesses that Offer Student Discounts and Deals

Sometimes it feels as though college students can never catch a break. It can feel as though you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Student loans, essays, exams, studying, balancing work and school, and social life? At times it may seem impossible.

When I was a student, the smallest things would bring me joy because I was constantly dealing with the everyday stresses that came along with earning my degree. So when I was asked “Are you a student” at a restaurant or business, my face would light up!

With that being said, here is a list of restaurants and businesses that will offer you a discount when you show proof that you’re a student.

  1. Amazon: Students are eligible for free two-day shipping for 6 months. This is perfect for when you need to order school supplies or textbooks!
  2. Jo-Ann Fabrics: Are you an art student? Or perhaps you need supplies for a class project. Jo-Ann fabrics offers a 10% discount, but only when you sign up for their student rewards program.
  3. Apple: Have you been eyeing a new MacBook to assist you with your studies? Apple offers a 20% off select products for students.
  4. Spotify: Only $5 a month to make as many study playlists as you need!
  5. Forever 21
  6. Chic-fil-a: show your student ID and get 10% off your meal! Just remember they’re closed on Sundays!
  7. Arby’s: You are eligible for a 10% discount when you show proof you’re a student!
  8. Dairy Queen: Enjoy a creamy blizzard with a 10% discount when you show your student ID. (You can get any menu item with the discount, but we can all agree Blizzards are the bomb!)
  9. Chipotle: Thirsty? Chipotle will give students a free drink!
  10. Kroger: Not big on eating out? Kroger offers 5% off an entire purchase for students who like to cook their own meals!
  11. Wingstop: Save a whopping 15% on all combos from 2 pm-6 pm Mondays-Fridays!
  12. Qdoba: Feeling spicy? Qdoba offers a $5 burrito deal that comes with a free drink for all students!
  13. Express: Do you need some office approved clothing for a new internship? Swing by Express for 15% off their non clearance items.
  14. Kate Spade: If you’re looking for a new planner to start your year off right, Kate Spade has plenty available, and for 15% off with your student ID.
  15. Adobe: Students will receive 60% off of Creative cloud.
  16. PINK: Take 15% off your entire purchase at VS PINK.
  17. Goodwill: Getting an even better bargain at thrift stores such as Goodwill? I’m in! Goodwill offers 10% off your entire purchase, but only on Thursdays.
  18. Amtrak: Going home for the holidays? Save 10% on tickets as well as earn points for travel.
  19. The New York Times: You will receive a discount code (varies by state) when you provide a student email.
  20. Geico: Commuting for work? Are you a B average student? You could qualify for 15% off select rates!

What is listed above is a small fraction of the businesses out there that will give students a deal. If you’re ever at a restaurant, store, or any business that doesn’t advertise a student discount, ask! More than likely they do. Students have a hard enough time as is, and they often need a break. These businesses are looking to give them just that.

LinkedIn: A How-To Guide

As you enter the professional world, you may often hear LinkedIn referenced in talks of networking. If you’re unfamiliar with LinkedIn, they define themselves as

“the world’s largest professional network on the internet. You can use LinkedIn to find the right job or internship, connect and strengthen professional relationships, and learn the skills you need to succeed in your career.”

 

According to their website, LinkedIn is an online social network like Facebook or Twitter but dedicated to professional networking and communication. A LinkedIn user’s profile page is similar to an online resume. Users can share their contact information, career summary, complete work history, professional skills, formal education details, and more. LinkedIn is primarily used to network with professional connections but has evolved over time into a job search platform. Recruiters use LinkedIn to look for candidates for their open positions and job applicants browse available positions.

 

Why you should join

LinkedIn is a great tool to network and connect with those around the country and the world in your professional field.

 

To date, LinkedIn has approximately 690 million users in countries across the globe. It is one of the most widely utilized tools used by professional recruiters to find potential employees. You may not be actively searching for a new job, but LinkedIn allows for recruiters to seek YOU out.

 

How to Create a LinkedIn Profile

Head to the LinkedIn website at https://www.linkedin.com

At the top of the first page you will see a ‘Join LinkedIn Today’ section. You will be prompted step by step to make an account.

 

Picking a Profile Picture

Although this is a small step, it is one of the most important. If you leave your profile photo blank, your profile is more likely to get skipped over by recruiters.

 

When choosing your photo, less is more. You want to stand out, while still looking professional. Don’t choose a picture from a beach vacation of you in your swimsuit. Choose a photo (preferably no selfies) in natural light, where you’re dressed in what you would wear to an interview. Photos from the shoulders up (headshots) work best.

If you want to go above and beyond, try having professional headshots taken.

 

 

Headline

Located next to your profile picture, your headline offers a minimal 120 characters to allow you to highlight who you are. This is your chance to create an eye-catching, attention-grabbing bio.

 

You do not need to fill in your headline, as LinkedIn will assign your job title and your employer as your headline. However, you should always fill this section in and keep it up to date. It is just another way to grab the attention of potential recruiters and employers.

 

Experience

This section will look very similar to your resume. However, it is acceptable to write in paragraph format on your LinkedIn profile, compared to your resume that will contain bullet points and highlights of your career.

 

You can even use this space to acknowledge your achievements in your past work history.

 

Education

In the education section of your profile, make sure to include graduate and undergraduate details, certifications, and awards earned while attending those institutions. Again, leave out what is not relevant.

 

Recommendations

This is where you’ll find recommendations from your LinkedIn connections. Try to get at least one, if not two, recommendations. Below is LinkedIn’s guide to requesting a recommendation:

 

Head to your profile and click the down arrow to the right of the button near your profile picture.

  • Click Ask to be recommended from the drop-down menu.
  • Follow the prompts to request the recommendation.
  • Click Send.

 

Skills

In this part of your account. You will select skills from a prewritten list. Make sure to only select skills that are actually applicable to you. Try to focus on your career history and the job you want and work from there. Don’t make your list too long, it will look like you did not take the time to select carefully.

 

Now You’re Ready!

Now that you’re all set up and ready to go, it’s time to utilize LinkedIn as much or as little as you would like. I would recommend checking in at least once a week to stay up to date with who contacts you and what job opportunities are available. Good luck and happy job hunting!

What I Wish I Would Have Known Before College

There is no step by step guide to survive school while pursuing a higher education degree. Many people describe college as some of the best years of their lives. However, higher education is a dramatic lifestyle change that can be hard to adapt to for many students. As a recent graduate reflecting on my college years, there are a few things I wish I had realized before I entered college. Here are a few things I wish I would’ve known, including stress, studying and money management.

In high school I was a three sport athlete, a member of the National Honor Society, the secretary for the student council and part of many other committees. I balanced these activities very well and loved every minute of it. However, the set schedule I was used to changed when I came to college. You are in charge of managing your schedule. No one is there to guide you along. This can be a major change of pace for many people. So my tip to you is to set a schedule. Sit down and plan out your week. Designate times to do assignments, tests and to study. Stick to your routine. Your grades will thank you.

If you had poor study habits in high school, it’s time to make a change. Students are often shocked by how much effort they must put into their classes. Even though students are often told how much time and effort they will have to put into their classes, they are typically stunned when they are actually expected to do it. If you’re really struggling, reach out to your advisor for helpful tips on how to manage your course work. They may also have resources available to you to make studying easier or more enjoyable! Don’t take on more than you can handle. Some students can handle four courses at a time while others may only be able to focus on one. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, that’s okay! Progress isn’t linear. Lastly, ask friends and loved ones what worked for them or look up studying tips online. If one method fails, don’t give up! Everyone is different, you just need to find your niche.

In all honesty, college was the most stressful time of my life. When my routine was no longer existent, I found that I had to discover new ways to manage stress and anxiety. It wasn’t until my junior year that I was able to find ways to manage that stress that worked for me. I found that what worked for me didn’t necessarily work for my friends. I had always been an extremely active person, so I naturally gravitated towards fitness to take my mind off of whatever I was stressed about. Going to the gym at the end of the day helped me relax and refocus. Other stress relievers can be painting, reading a book or even just watching a movie or tv for a little while. Find a healthy coping mechanism and make sure to incorporate it into your new routine.

Last but not least, money. Money can be a huge concern while earning your degree, and managing it can be difficult. My advice would be to set a budget or allowance for yourself. You can make it weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly. Factor in the cost of your loans, along with other expenses such as books and materials. When I made my budget, I also included money for food, extracurriculars along with how much money I would put into savings. I really stress putting money aside for savings. When my senior year rolled around, I was able to pay off my whole first semester with what money I had put aside which saved me the stress of paying more interest on my loan. Every bit counts, save what you can, when you can.

For many students, college is a whole new world and what comes along with it can be stressful and overwhelming. Finding what works for you during this time is extremely important. Sometimes, though, a little guidance can be helpful — take it from people who learned the hard way.

Habits for Your Tutorial Online

0362ed6You might be in a hunt for an online tutor, but you may also be apprehensive about it because you might not have the time to do so. Tutoring online is one option for you to excel in your chosen course. Not only is it convenient but it is also accessible, provided there is a strong internet connection around.

A few tips will guide you for your tutoring online. These tips though are just some of the things you need to maximize on for your time online. Not all students can adapt fast to online tutoring, but if you can follow these simple steps then you might enjoy doing online tutoring on a daily basis.

First, you log on to the internet five minutes before your tutorial. Just to get the hang of it. Don’t stress yourself when you’re doing online tutorial. If you do, you will lose focus somewhere during the session. Stay on course. Don’t try to get introduced another activity while you’re in the middle of your tutorial. Don’t make the mistake of doing two to three things all at the same time. You will have haphazard work if you do.

Find a quiet place to work and study. Try to concentrate. Because it is easily accessible, you can just log in and log off just about anywhere depending on your mood. Tutoring online is not that easy, especially when you don’t have any focus in you.

After your online sessions, try to reset your brain and body. Try to recharge by doing activities not related to your online study. By doing this, you can remove all the stress and burden that has built up during your sessions. If you can make these simple steps a habit, then you are on your way to a more relaxed online tutoring. You can get to learn more in the process.

Demand for RNs is Still on the Rise

Registered Nurses (RN) are on the rise. While the demand for RNs continues to rise, the number of RNs however, continues to shrink. Thus, it is a near perfect guarantee that RNs will find and keep work.

RNs are needed everywhere. There is even an increase in cross-country enrollment to nursing courses. Many students strive to enroll in other countries to learn more about the nursing course. The reasons for this annual increase is quite stark that other universities tend to limit the flow of aspiring nurses because they cannot physically accommodate everyone that is interested in earning a nursing degree. This is where Distance Learning Systems can help to fill the gap with online classes.

One of the reasons for the increasing demand for RNs is that a significant part of the population are growing old. And the effect of this somehow is the need to produce more nurses. Every year there is an installation of either a foster home or a patient care institution. The construction of these patient care units would lead to the hiring of nurses and medical staff.

Another thing is that the statistical number of sick people are on the rise. Others would even hire the services of one or two nurses, depending on the need of the patient. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act also contributed to the demand of nurses. Because patients now have access to affordable healthcare, more nurses would be employed to give extended help. The idea of going outpatient has been with us for quite a long time. But lately, it has seen its revival since many patients opt for this kind of service compared to a hospital.

This situation is growing in numbers by the day. That’s the reason why there seems to be no end why nursing students are still among the highest when it comes to enrollment. And by the looks of it, it will keep on growing as long as there are patients and patient care centers.
