How to learn from home

Aside from having the right tech you also need to get on the right mindset of online learning and what working from home entails.

Helpful tips

  • Preview your setup: Test your webcam, microphone, and internet speed, so that you don’t run into any issues or end up distracting others.
  • Ask questions: One benefit of moving the traditional classroom online is that with Zoom chat or Google Hangouts are great for asking more questions online while staying in your comfort zone.
  • Rewatch lessons: Without the pressure to take on so much information at once take the pressure off of memorizing right away by re-watching lessons and learning at your own pace.
  • Freshen up: Make sure you know how to properly save files, record your screen, convert a PDF file to Word, and other basic functions.

Make learning fun

There are a lot of fun educational games for kids online. Minecraft added educational puzzles, challenges, and assignments for kids to enjoy with friends.


While you may not get the direct contact with your professor, teacher, or tutor, there are still a lot of benefits to learning from home. There are great online resources such as borrowing e-books from your library. You can also browse free educational databases for students, including free virtual field trips to museums and zoos.
