Set a Goal for Completion
Setting a goal for completion puts you in the driver’s seat of your journey through this course. Mark your calendar. Set aside about an hour to view each video, complete the test and evaluation, and reflect on how you will use this new information to set a personal goal. After session 1, you may cut a few minutes off each session by double clicking to the 2:40 time on the slide progress bar to skip the introduction. You can also skip the repeated closing statements. You can pause the presentation when needed. Following the web page course guide will aide you in completing each lesson. It is best to watch at least 2 lessons per week to keep re-enforcing the information you are learning. Set a schedule that is best for you.
Don’t Fret Over the Tests
Each video topic includes a short multiple choice test that must be taken to complete the session on your progress record. If you find the tests difficult, it might help to review each test prior to watching the video. Do not worry about your score. You can review the material and take the test again. Our goal is to provide this course so that you can learn, and apply what you learn, to your everyday life.
Keep the Focus: Remember Why You are Taking this Course
Think about why you are taking this course and what you hope to accomplish. Is it to gain insight into your health or the health of someone else? Is it to have a better handle on managing your diabetes? Whatever the reason, keep that in mind as you work towards your personal goals!
