In addition to that, there may be downloadable reading materials that correspond to these units. We expect learners to go through all of these different materials in order to be able to complete the course and clear the Course Completion Test.
In what order should I start learning from the materials?
You will ordinarily have to complete watching the videos that are part of a unit and then move to the practice questions to test your understanding of these videos. If there are reading materials, you should read them before you attempt the practice exercises. The course will usually recommend this order of completing tasks in your classroom.
I have a doubt about one of the concepts discussed in a video. Who can I ask?
As you learn from a course on myLearn, it is only natural to have questions or require clarifications about something in the videos, the reading materials, or the reasoning adopted in one of the practice questions. Any of those questions can be posted on the Discussion Forum for your course, which is on the right side of your classroom. Our faculty will survey the forum regularly to answer any unanswered queries.
Can I take notes while learning?
Notes are a good way of recording your understanding of the concepts taught in the videos. You can also use your notes to reduce your understanding to the most relevant points. We recommend that you use the “Add Notes” feature to take notes while watching the videos. Your notes can be tagged to a specific point in the video’s timeline. This means that your notes will automatically contain references to those parts of a video that you found relevant.
I took a lot of notes while I was watching the videos. Where can I find them?
If you used the “Add Notes” feature to take notes as you watched the videos, you can browse them on the right side of your classroom, under the ‘Notes’ tab. You can segregate them according to different units of the course and also download them.
I was not able to complete my course in the designated period. What are my options?
