Thank you all for your input! I am making notes on paper for know and filing them in the relevant place. Who knows how long before I just end up with a big pile of paper! I don't think I would ever find anything again haha
I am about to start a part-time online Masters module and was wondering if anyone has any advice about studying when you have health issues.
I have a few problems, but the ones that I think will cause me the most trouble are mental fatigue and brain fog. I often find it really hard to focus my eyes on materials, especially on a screen, and thinking about anything complicated can feel like wading through marmalade.
I love learning and put off my postgraduate studies for a couple of years in the hope my health would improve, and when it didn't, I decided that it probably didn't matter how long I waited.
I am in touch with the disability support team at the university and am waiting to hear back from them about alternative material formats, like printed copies of online resources, and audiobooks.
If there is anyone out there who has experienced this sort of thing, I would be so happy to hear from you :)
ilse and Dr_Crabby - did you manage to solve your problems? How did everything work out?
I'm new here and would like to ask you for some tips on taking notes. I took a break from studying for a couple of years and am starting a part-time Masters module with the Open University soon. I'm struggling to decide on how I should take notes, and I would love to hear what you do :)
Thanks in advance,
