PROVO, Utah—August 29, 2014—Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, has released a new infographic exploring the value of having a study buddy, compatible personality types and strategies for being a great study buddy.“With all the resources available through technology, going to school through an online program does not mean you don’t need to interact with other students,” said Vice President of Academics, Jerolyn Robertson. “We have many students who find and connect with study buddies through our online student and graduate community, and this is a great way for students to expand and enrich their learning experiences.”The new Career Step infographic is intended to draw attention to this often overlooked study strategy. The topic became an area of focus when it was noted that Career Step graduates often state that the school’s student and graduate community and the relationships they were able to develop there were very important to their overall learning and motivation throughout the training.The infographic offers four ways having a study buddy can enrich learning as well as a guide to choosing a study buddy with a compatible personality. The rest of the infographic focuses on several strategies that make a study buddy relationship successful such as setting goals together, discussing course material and engaging in a little friendly competition.“Having a study buddy is a great way to improve your learning, whether you find a study partner after you start school or enroll with someone right from the start,” said Ben Hartman, Director of Admissions. “In addition to enriching your learning experience, enrolling with a friend can often save you money.”View and share Career Step’s Where’s Your Study Buddy?
