What are the requirements. ● Make a habit, do it “daily” ● Does it involve collaboration (hangouts, meetings, team project, peer review etc...)? ● Use forums (but wisely, LOT OF CONTENT) ● Participate & network (but wisely :))
  4. 4. Tips and tricks leverage the experience ● Read class agenda carefully, if possible look at the past content ● Try to google for a course review or recommendations (e.g. coursetalk. org) ● Listen / view lectures @high speed mode :) ● Focus on one platform or use aggregator (e.g. class-central.com)
