It is good Netiquette to study tests and quizzes. Do review what you have learned.
Quizzes are required that allow for multiple tries until a student gets the answers right. They generally require that students take a quiz as many times as they need to get all or a certain percentage of right answers.
Studying quizzes is similar to reading a books bold face concepts and key definitions. Since you can take them multiple time they are key concepts. Studying them is studying the important stuff, key terms for understanding the module or concept.
Quiz material often appears on the final exam or assignment. Just like making flash cards will help you study for a traditional class, studying the quizzes and tests will help you study for Mooc final or assignment.
Learn quiz material because the concepts are keys to the courses.
It is good Netiquette to study assignments. Do use homework to replace text books.
Homework assignments contain the concepts the course conveys. There are excercises and quizzes that accompany lectures and graded tests periodically. The course providers provide lectures. Assignments test understanding and provide an example students can follow.
Schools use slightly different formats. The basic structures of courses are the same. There are homework assignments, quizzes, and tests. Tests are usually the only graded assignments. They are timed. Books are suggested reading material, not required.
Online resources are supplied by the school. Additional internet resources, links, provide more information. Traditionally graded tests are extensions or preparation for assignments. Assignments provide references similar to textbooks.
Study homework because assignments replace textbooks.
It is good Netiquette to take notes or watch lectures multiple times. Do know what the teacher says.
Lectures are offered through online videos. Many provide the slides from the instructors video. Some provide transcripts of the lecture. Watching them multiple times is often aloud.
The video, slides, and transcripts of a given lecture can be saved by the student and viewed multiple times. They are study aids. Studying requires taking notes.
Notes transfer concepts and other learning material into words a student understands personally. They are the output of the intake of information. Comprehension of study aids.
Simply watching lectures and reading material does not usually give a student the required practice processing the concept. We don’t internalize the information because we are not required to. Alternatively, watching videos multiple times is similar to taking notes. It reinforces the material.
Take notes from material because it helps internalize the lessons.
