Online Quranic lessons has been popping up lately since, this is the new way people have started to teach themselves and their children Quran online. Since, online lessons are on a rise, not everyone gets successful in the business.There are multiple sites and tuitions that help teach Quran online but only a few are successful. Quranic learning is the essential part of a Muslims life and people tent to complete their Quran education anyway, anytime! So, here we bring you some tips to boost your online Quran teaching business and how to become successful in it!
1. Expand and regard your audience
Quranic learning is something that you can get at any time of your life, at any age. Meaning, you have two types of audience; adult and children. Both the types of audience have their own requirements and the teacher needs to take in considerations for both the audience. Adults do not really need assistance at every step of their learning because, they are rather self- governing and independent while, your younger audience does need backing and support at majority of times and steps. So, you need to understand the specifications of your target audience and have versatility in your teaching style with which ever audience or students you are dealing with!
2. Contemplate taking feedbacks
This tip is simple. Make sure to have a little comment section on your website as to make sure that your audience is happy with you. Moreover, this helps you get aware of what your audience and class wants from you. If not a comment section, you can take feedback from the students at the end of your class or carry out a little survey. Feedback helps you improve yourself and your teachers, too by assessing peoples’ learning experience with you. Reviews and feedbacks often make you understand what you need add or subtract from your online teaching and lessons.
3. Connect with the students
Stay connected with your students. Make sure that you plan out your classes and try to make those engaging. Students tend to enjoy the classes when the lessons and the teachers are interactive. Especially, during online learning, try to engage with students and share experiences. Sometimes, even let them share their experiences and stories, too. Interactive classes always make learning better and effective. But, make sure that the conversation and interaction stays within boundaries and subject.
4. Use effective expertise
During live and online classes, one thing that you need to have hands over is effective expertise. That is; make use of best gadgets and apps. Make sure that you have effectual internet connection, the one that does not lag and interrupt especially between classes. This way, the tempo of learning gets completely destroyed and the class no more takes interest or put in efforts. Also, make use of white board, if possible. This way, the productivity of the class increases and things regarding learning are better sorted and explained. You can design and ready the board beforehand in order to save time and reach your planner at the exact time you had planned.
5. Plan out your classes
One thing that you can do to increase the productivity of your class learning is to plan out your classes. You make a lesson planner for the day or a week so that you know what demand you need to meet by the end of a certain week (if the planner is for a week). If you follow this tip, you become more focused and work with increased vigor with your mind set, free and fresh!
6. Ask questions!
During a live/ online class especially, students tend to cheat and not pay attention to the class since, they are not being watched over by the teacher or by an authority. One thing, that you can do to curb this habit of students is to ask question in between the lessons. You can either cold call students and randomly ask them questions regarding the lesson and subject or take a small little quiz/ revision at the end of the class in order to promote and self- assure yourself for a better learning. Furthermore, you can prompt your students to ask any questions they feel stuck over since that only increases productivity. The other thing that you can do is to get any kid of your class to summarize the topic or the lesson that you taught in that class. This make the students more woke during the class with an idea that they might get called out by the end of the class to summarize the lesson.
7. Schedule online tests and assessments
Since online learning is tricky and the teachers can never self- assure themselves of the fact that their students have the best grip over their subject i.e. the Quran. One way to achieve this goal is to schedule tests and assessments. There are numerous ways now that can help you carry out online tests and assessments. There are certain apps that help make and carry out quizzes for classes. Or you can take an oral test of your students while in a live class which can help you assess the learning of your students (in my opinion, oral tests are best and the most considerate when it comes to Quranic learning).
8. Set effective time schedules and environment
During online learning, students need extra motivation to study. Especially, at home since, home is obviously not the best atmosphere to study. You can command your students to set a place of their house which is solely for study and learning purpose. Ask them to fill that space with books and only learning essentials. Moreover, you can set a fruitful time best for study which research suggests is early in the morning. So that, your students get all their homework and other works assigned to them before their class starts.
