Study.com strategy?
#1
Hi, does anyone have suggestions or strategies they have used to get through Study.com classes more quickly, while still retaining enough knowledge to pass the final? I am finding it takes ages because of all the quizzes and I am trying to get my Gen Ed stuff done as quickly as I can so I can move on to degree specific courses. Thanks for any advice.

I read the chapters vs watching the videos...seems to make it go a lot faster for me.

If watching videos on your computer you can speed up the video.
I multitask for some videos. Set up phone and do a video or 2 at night when brushing/flossing. Set up laptop and watch several while eating breakfast or lunch.

I did the whole binge thing - 1 chapter at a time. So no breaks or anything until a whole chapter was complete, and then a good portion of the course was completed each time I got up - made me more motivated to continue.

I also didn't watch the videos unless I was having trouble understanding something.

I rarely watched any videos. I would read the chapters and go to the quiz. I had the app on my phone and would read while on breaks at work or standing in a line to something or whatever. Basically if I had a few minutes I was reading.

I picked courses I knew a good bit about, just no class credit to prove it.
This way I just did the quizzes then the final.

Is there anything you can start with that comes naturally to you?

Future: 07/22/18 Capstone will be complete

I would also recommend courses with a lot of overlap. People report having 10-40% of a course completed before they start with some things. If you do a bunch of Psych courses for example, each consecutive course will have more quizzes completed.

That's great advice, thank you, especially since I plan on taking a lot of their psych courses.

If there is an assessment available take it -several times. It can knock off the number of quizzes you need to take. I was able to assess out of about 40% of one course.
