5 Things I Learned From Enrolling in An Online College

In this article I will cover 5 things I learned from enrolling in a psychology class. Psychology is an interesting subject because it deals with people, their behaviors and emotions and is a very interesting field of study. A lot of students enroll in various types of classes so that they can learn more about the nature of the human mind. There are many good classes that one could enroll in but for many the intro course to psychology is where they get stuck. This article will cover what I learned from the intro course to psychology.


The first thing I learned from this class was that there were really no bad students in the class. Every person in the class either A treated other like well or poorly or B treated everyone with respect. That’s the way it is in real life. If I treated a student poorly the student would in turn treat me poorly, which would end up in me having to take a lot of notes and do a lot of rewriting on my papers because I wouldn’t understand what the student was trying to say. So it’s not the case that there are bad students in this class.


I learned that sometimes going in to a class is a waste of time. Once you go in you never know what you are going to get. Some students are going to be confused by the course material, some will fail and some are going to be able to get through the course without any problems at all. My experience in this class was that a few of the students who I had a problem with really made a big impact on me. Some of them actually started to call me “Professor” because of how hard I worked in the course. 


I learned that there are no impostors. When you enroll in a course you don’t become the impostor, you are simply going to learn. You can’t learn something new if you are not studying what you are learning. You should never try to learn something in a way that you think it might be better or more effective than what you are currently learning. It’s not true that you will become better in a new subject just because someone said it’s better or more effective.

  • You won’t become a better writer because your mother grew up in a house with a television.
  • If you want to learn to write a book, you are going to have to read books and study grammar rules.
  • If you want to learn to play an instrument, you are going to listen to music.
  • It’s the same thing. Treat your education like a worthwhile pursuit.

The most important thing to keep in mind while you are in a class is that everyone there is learning for a reason. It doesn’t matter if you are going to school for one semester or five years. Everyone there is doing it for a reason, to get a degree or certification, to have job skills, and to be able to get promoted. That is why you must stay focused and motivated while you are there. 

The Value of Self-Discipline

Another of the many things I learned from enrolling in an online college is the value of self-discipline. This one may sound basic but it really is not. To succeed in anything you must have self-discipline. Self-discipline doesn’t mean that you have to be a masochist or constantly late for classes. It means that you are disciplined enough to set aside some time in your day to do your classes and to work on your homework. It also means that you stay early for your studies so you don’t arrive late to class.


Finally, the third most valuable lesson I learned from enrolling in an online college was to get more organized. If you keep track of what you are doing in your classes, you will see a decrease in the number of things you have to do. When you learn to prioritize, you will become less overwhelmed because you know exactly what you need to do. When you are overwhelmed, you won’t be able to learn as much. So, find a way to make getting organized fun.
