Skills for Learning in an Info Age is the perfect class to take in a student’s first block of classes at University of Phoenix. I learned quite a bit from this class, and I know that it will help me tremendously in the rest of my academic career.
This class taught and gave me tips on how to use Axia academic resources, how to employ academic honesty, how to set and achieve goals, how to manage time wisely, reading retention, and how to utilize my personality type and multiple intelligences.

That workshop taught me how to manage time, prioritize, and gave me a couple of good study tips.
There is also an interactive learning tutorial called OLS Tutorial for Students. It is a step-by-step guide on how to log in, access your classes, and go in-depth in each course.
