Research suggests that students are more motivated and fulfilled during online courses when they do the courses with others – with study buddies. For example, in CDI’s courses, you would benefit from watching the video with others and then discussing what you have seen. Each course includes sources for additional learning that you could do with others.
Join CDI’s Discussion Group on Facebook to share questions, answers, suggestions and resources with CDI faculty and other students.
Perhaps the best way to find study buddies is to find them before you enroll in a course or series, so you can start and finish them together. Talk to your colleagues and peers or to others in your organization.
