Write an exam question

Do you hate answering mock exam questions? Don't worry. Change sides. Write and share a question every week with your peers. You'll learn how to ask and answer questions better.

Comic strips

Create your own comic strips or images to remember concepts, topics or important points for the exam. Share, laugh, enjoy, remember!

Hands-on exercises

    On a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the best), I would rate this course 5!

    I felt that the course met its purpose of enabling me to prepare for the OCA Java SE 8 certification, in an engaging (not boring) way.

    I found this course very interesting and challenging; the topics covered were extremely interesting, and I loved the hands-on approach, to putting things into practise what you covered in the chapter.

    I didn't dislike anything about this course, I found it very enjoyable. At times it one can become overwhelmed with the amount of reading that needs to be done to pass the course. Personally, for me, and this is not a bad thing, it took me some time to really understand the Java 8 DateTime APIs, I had to read the section, 2 times.

Questions and Answers.

Why distance learning?

Distance learning is a great way to build skills and enhance qualification along with your present jobs. You can do it from the privacy of your own home as technology continues to evolve, making computers and the Internet available to almost everyone. At the same time one should remember, you get out what you put in, so even distance learning requires dedication.

Limitations of Self Study / Online courses

All popular models of online training like CBTs, online tutorials, even books etc. rely on the student's self monitoring during the study process. It is proven by research that in self learning or distance learning courses, the course completion rate is poor. One reason for this is that the training provider loses touch with the student which leads to students losing interest in the course. The missing point is the presence of a mentor like in a classroom. If one is able to provide a mentor who is always available to answer student's minutest of queries, perform assessments regularly, evaluate examination and projects, then the drop out rate can be cut drastically.
