How to learn online

The internet is loaded with more content than any single human being can consume in 6 lifetimes. ⁣
⁣⁣
And more content pieces are created every day.⁣
⁣⁣
From the last statistics, 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute.⁣
⁣⁣
Yes. EVERY MINUTE. ⁣
⁣⁣
This means 12 days worth of video is uploaded per minute.⁣

⁣Is this a good thing? ⁣

⁣A bad thing? ⁣

⁣Well, you’d know soon.⁣
⁣⁣.⁣
⁣Because of the “abundance” of content on the internet, anyone with an internet enabled device automatically has access to loads of information. ⁣

⁣And this was okay at a time… Until the risk of information overload came in. ⁣⁣⁣

So you can be in a lake of information and still lack “information”. ⁣
⁣.⁣⁣⁣
Everything online may be good, but not everything online is good for you.⁣

If you do not know how to learn online, you’ll end up going through so much information without really learning anything.⁣
⁣⁣
Being in class doesn’t mean you are learning.⁣

⁣Steps? I’ll talk about the first today.⁣
⁣.⁣⁣⁣
1. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT.⁣

This is one of the biggest reasons why your learning may have been really slow. ⁣

On the 19th of December, 2009, I created my first email account. ⁣

⁣This was over 10 years ago and it was a yahoo mail.⁣

⁣I remember going to the cyber cafe for this purpose, buying 1 hour of “time” and sitting down to “achieve my goals”. ⁣
⁣.⁣
⁣At this time, for you to access the internet, you’ll need to buy a small paper with a username and password tied to a very defined time frame. ⁣

⁣When the time is up, you either buy again or go back to your house and think about your life for the rest of the day. ⁣
⁣⁣
Today I’m a Digital Media Consultant, training personal brands and business owners how to leverage digital tools and platforms better from the comfort of my home. ⁣
⁣.⁣
⁣The barrier to accessing the internet has become seriously low now and everyone with a night plan can come online by 12.30am to remind you that valentine is coming and you don’t have a boo. ⁣

⁣That is fine. But it has also affected a lot.⁣
⁣⁣
Because of the “perceived” comfort involved in accessing the internet now, people hardly do so with goals in mind.⁣
⁣⁣
The first step to truly learning online is knowing what you want.⁣
⁣⁣
If you do not know what you want, you’ll roam around the streets of the web without gaining so much.⁣
⁣.⁣
⁣What you want can be broken down into time frames.⁣
⁣⁣
You may want to be a digital marketer but in February, you’ll want to learn Email marketing.⁣
⁣⁣
In March, chatbot marketing or copywriting.⁣

⁣Be definite. ⁣

⁣Everything online may be good but not everything is good for you.⁣
⁣⁣
Know what you want to learn.⁣

⁣At this end of this series, you should have a workable template for learning.⁣

⁣How to learn online. ⁣
⁣⁣
To your continued Digital Productivity,⁣
