My Learning Style
This course has given me a chance to look into my learning style and how my mind processes information received. I am a visual learner so naturally I need to be able to see things in order to process them at the best of my ability. I have to underline and highlight important facts in the text and take notes. I understand that with online learning these things may present a challange, for example my text book for this course is online. I have been able to download the text so I can read it, but I do not have the book in front of me to write in the margins and highlight information that I feel is important. I have printed out some of the text that I thought would be benefical, however in a "green" world I am trying to save as much paper as possible. I have adapted to reading with a spiral notebook. I keep my notes in the notebook with the page number of the online text. This has allowed me to know exactly where to go back and find the specfic information I was looking at when I made the note. I have also done this with the online discussion from the professor, minus the page number of course. I feel that these adaptations will allow me to be successful.
