Did you know that you could transform your career with a Building Information Modeling (BIM) training program without even leaving your home? The BIM technician course at Digital School is available online, and students can choose to complete the full-time program within 6 months or the part-time program within a year.

Online learning is perfect for students who want a brighter future but need to balance study with work and family commitments. However, it does present a unique set of challenges, particularly for individuals who are used to learning in a classroom environment.

Read on to find out how to make the most of your online learning journey with these study tips!

Create a Dedicated Study Space to Learn BIM Online

When you first start learning at home, it can be tempting to get comfortable and study in bed or on the sofa. However, this can have a negative impact on your productivity as well as your posture.

Research has shown that working from your bed or other ‘chill out spaces’ can be damaging because there is no separation between work and home. Creating a designated study space can help to create these boundaries. As well as this, you might start to associate your study space with working, which can help you enter a productive frame of mind when sitting in that space.

When choosing a study space, try to find a quiet place with a desk and chair, natural light, and a good wifi connection to complete your online BIM training. This will be good for you and your mental health.

Connect with Other Students and Instructors

At Digital School, we are home to an entire community of dedicated and experienced instructors as well as passionate and ambitious students. In order to make the most of your BIM technician training, we encourage students to connect with other students and instructors and be an active part of the community.

You could organize virtual meetups with classmates and study together. In addition, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your instructors are there to support you, so don’t struggle with a problem in silence.

Take Screen Breaks

When you learn BIM online, you gain experience with software, including Revit, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Naisworks, Formit, BIM360, and more. Students will graduate with the creative, applied, and practical skills they need to succeed.

With so much to learn, it’s important that students take regular breaks away from a screen. This will help to improve productivity, as you will have more energy and be able to think clearly when you do study. You could go for a walk, do some exercise, or spend time chatting with family and friends.

Make a Study Calendar

If you are starting a new online program, it’s important to get organized. It’s a good idea to create a study schedule with all upcoming deadlines so that you are prepared for any assignments.

This will also make it easier for you to balance your studies with other commitments like work and family. In addition, you will be able to schedule in study time well in advance and avoid any last-minute panicking before a test.
