If you think college is complicated, wait until you learn how to describe an online course. If you can’t describe your online experience on your own, you’re probably not a college student.
How To Describe An Online Learning Experience
Discovering, or revisiting, a life-changing learning experience, whether it’s a job interview, an important communication lesson, or a new skill or skill-set you feel you’ve gained, can be exhilarating, at the very least. It’s so far beyond the days of actually sitting in a classroom to learn a thing or so often the audience is actually the audience of yourself. So what’s the next step? Now you’re in the job interview arena. Before that happened, how do you describe an online learning experience?
Unlike a work-related course, an online learning experience isn’t easy to describe. The learning can take place anywhere you want, even though it may sometimes take place in your own home. The teacher isn’t necessarily close by, though. And when you are explaining what the experience is, you may be personally interacting with or receiving the skill or training you’re taking.
Traditional and traditional-but-overlooked terms make learning experiences more appealing to employers and students. Nothing turns off a candidate, especially a high school student, than a wordy language or messy jargon. One-way conversation is the norm, and it’s not a practice many will embrace, especially among high school students. Whether or not it’s an old school, anti-experience — or a dated acronym — these descriptions represent your experience. They’re not just for hiring managers, so what should you use?
