Access to Facebook Group / New Student Introduction
by Traci Ca - Friday, 15 May 2020, 4:07 PM
 

Hi there! I'm Traci, 25 from Indiana. I'm brand new, haven't even received my books yet. I've done the first couple non-book assignments, and I'm just going through everything to become more familiar with it all.


 I wasn't going to post anything right off the bat, but while skimming through posts, saw that the Facebook group is referenced a few times. I was wondering if the Facebook group was pretty active now, and if it would be helpful to join it? I tried searching for it, but figured I would reach out here first and see if anyone would be able to help.


Thanks and hello!


Any other newbies just starting up?

I FOUND A LINK! The search option works as intended, LOL!


Still would like to see if there's anyone else out there just starting up or if any of you that are more advanced have anything for us new students that you wish you had known.

Hi Traci, welcome aboard! I'll be your instructor in Module II, so I'll be seeing you a bit later.

The Facebook group is fairly active, so it's definitely not a bad idea to join! For anyone else who is also interested, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1412722825626643/

Each module will actually have its own forum, and you will find plenty of helpful posts in them from instructors and students that will be more specific to the assignments you are working through. You'll get some good advice from those forums.

Overall, the only tips I'd suggest at this point is to read everything very thoroughly and follow all instructions. Also, be sure to email your instructors any time you need help. Other than that, you will learn a lot as you progress through the program, and you will pick up many tips and tricks along the way!


Have a great weekend!

Well thank you very much, and it's nice to meet you! 

Hope you are having a great weekend thus far, and I look forward to learning under your instruction in a few months!

Welcome to the course Traci!!  I'm currently in Module IV.  I would say the best advice is: Read the Forums for each Module!!  Lots of tips, tricks, and also good advice to know you are not alone during this course!!  Also, just breathe and keep going!!!!!  This is not going to be easy, your mind will want to explode, you will feel defeated, but you ARE NOT!!  You are LEARNING!!  All of the wonderful instructors we have will tell you the same thing!! :) Don't be afraid to ask them questions and you will be successful.  Just work through it and keep going.  

Best of luck!!


Stephanie
