How To Get The Most From This Learning Module

How to Get the Most Out Of Your Strategic Learning Module (SLM)

Firstly, if you are a member of Real Guitar Awesomeness please post any questions you have about this learning module in the Members Only Facebook Group.

 

  1. Review the 1st Lesson in Each Section – Go to the 1st lesson in each section and either read the lesson or watch the video.  This will help you understand the progression of the steps, see where  we are going and put everything in context. Don’t worry about either understanding everything or being able to do what’s instructed. This is just an overview.
  1. Complete the steps – This Learning Module is a checklist.  Each step builds upon the next.  Complete each step in order.
  2. 80% Rule – Don’t wait until you’ve perfected each lesson. Practice until you think you’re about 80%, then move on. Use your own judgement.

Lastly, here’s how to use the Strategic Learning Module interface.

View the example Learning Module below…

SLM-Example-Image1. Progress Bar – The Progress Bar shows you the percentage of the Learning Module you have completed.

2. Check boxes – Click the check box to indicate completion of a Course Step or Course Section.

3. Course Sections – A Learning Module is a series of steps that lead to the completion of milestones.

4. Course Steps (Lessons) – Each section contains multiple steps or lessons.

5. Arrows – Use the Arrow Buttons to open and close the Course Steps in the Learning Module.

IMPORTANT: In this Strategic Learning Module each lesson is progressive and builds on the ones before. I strongly recommend that you do not skip lessons. If the program seems slower than you can go at least watch or read each lesson to make sure you are not missing important information.
