You will ordinarily have to complete watching the videos that are part of a unit and then move to the practice questions to test your understanding of these videos. The course will usually recommend this order of completing tasks in your classroom.

As you learn from a course on myLaw, it is only natural to have questions or require clarifications about something in the videos, the reading materials, or the reasoning adopted in one of the practice questions. Any of those questions can be posted on the Discussion Forum for your course, which is on the right side of your classroom. Our faculty will survey the forum regularly to answer any unanswered queries.

Was this answer helpful?

It is not unusual for a student to disagree with something in the learning materials, for example, a recommended method of practice or the interpretation of a statutory provision. Voicing your opinions and being open to contrary views are among the best ways to learn something. We encourage you to debate and discuss your opinions on the Discussion Forum for your course, which you will find on the right side of your classroom. Our faculty will moderate these discussions and help you arrive at satisfactory conclusions.

Notes are a good way of recording your understanding of the concepts taught in the videos. You can also use your notes to reduce your understanding to the most relevant points. We recommend that you use the “Add Notes” feature to take notes while watching the videos. Your notes can be tagged to a specific point in the video’s timeline. This means that your notes will automatically contain references to those parts of a video that you found relevant.

If you used the “Add Notes” feature to take notes as you watched the videos, you can browse them on the right side of your classroom, under the ‘Notes’ tab. You can segregate them according to different units of the course and also download them. You will continue to have access to your notes even after your access to the course has lapsed. Just go to your “My Courses” page and see the courses that have lapsed. You can download the notes by clicking on the Download Notes button.
