Consider sharing it with your friends.

Higher education is changing and the internet has a lot to do with it. Finding information used to be difficult. Your parents may still have bookshelves of encyclopedias, which used to be the most convenient way to find information on a wide range of topics. Now we have access thousands of times more information sitting in our pockets. Learning and memorizing facts is not important, we can look up facts instantly. What is important is meta-learning (learning how to learn) and problem-solving. These are the valuable skills today.

If you're taking this class then chances are you're following a guided path to learning, i.e. the traditional educational career. Once you graduate you'll no longer have such a path and you'll need to create one for yourself. There are many techniques to teach yourself, reading books, taking an online course, training seminars, reading blog posts, trial and error... the list goes on. The point being, there is never a better time to explore self-directed learning and what works best for you.

For example, I'm attending WordCamp Ann Arbor next weekend. This conference gives me an opportunity to improve my knowledge of the WordPress website platform and teach others what I've learned. This is one of many techniques I use to keep my skills sharp and keep up with a quickly changing industry.

Do you currently do any self-directed learning? If so, what have you found effective?

There is no doubt that the technology make self-directed learning much easier. In the past, if you want to finish your graduation thesis, maybe you have to sit in the library for two months or even longer. Now you could just move your finger and type the keyword in Google. It is easy to get access to the recourses.

I do some self-directed learning currently. I take the web classes which teach me how to operate the fianl cut pro proficiently. In my opinion, the best thing of self-directed is that it is flexible. You do not have to show in a specific place at a specific time. And if you are confused about one part, you could just pause and watch that part again. It all depends yourself.

In digital age, we have more opportunities to self-directed learning in many ways. If you wanted to find informations, you had to correct all the books that would be related to the topic and had to read all topics. However, for now, If you want to find them, you only need to do is clicking and typing on the google. In addition, I use a lot of devices and application when i study: there is a iCloud function on the Mac devices which makes me way easier to study. First, I download the files through the website and share them to the iCloud folder which is in the Macbook. Then I can open them where ever I want to look them up.

I am currently doing self-directed leraning. For instance, reading book or watching documentary. Especially, I am enjoy watching documentary about history or animal kingdom. Watching documentaries are really helpful to understand rather than just reading a book. Narration well explains what is going on which is better to understand. Also, I am enjoying reading once a week. From reading a book, I am learning how to write better. Frome there self-directed learning; I feel like I am becoming smarter.

I do a lot of self-directed learning and have for many years. I don't think that we should ever stop learning. As a single parent I've read a lot of books and done a lot of online research about parenting. A few years ago I was a self-employed health coach. I did a lot of searching online and read a lot of books about online and social media marketing, how to motivate people, how to be an effective leader, and things of that nature. In my current position as a gym manager with Anytime Fitness, there is a lot I've had to learn about the business and how this company operates. Also I am a firm believe in personal development. I am always reading one or two PD books and have enrolled in various online workshops. Along with what I find online and in books, I also seek out people who can teach me things I want to learn. For instance, personal trainers, nurses, doctors, entrepreneurs, etc. I intend to be a life-long student.

Student

I think most people are using the self-directed learning for now because most information can be found on websites. As for me, I always use self-directed learning on writing assignments. For example, the assignment I wrote for this week. I have searched some information about the Search Engine Optimization besides the reading materials that have provided by instructors. I also will search some review materials before an exam on Google. Due to there have many knowledge points that already summarized by the author which is really helpful for me to review an exam.

Student

Self-directed learning, whether we mean to do it or not, is always a part of our daily lives. This is because technology is at an all-time high and accessing information is extremely easy. Wondering what a word means or trying to figure out an explanation for simple is as easy as a Google search. I use Google a lot to look up words I don’t know or to find information that I may be seeking. Even when we go to office hours or to a speaker we are always striving to learn more. I feel that it is human nature more than anything and the ability to access free information leads us all to be smarter. I actively participate in seminars and conferences mostly because of networking, but also to learn more about my field and what is evolving. I want to make sure I am on the cutting edge of everything there is to know. This will make me more marketable and will prove to be a valuable asset later in life.

Student

After reading this, I felt kind of bad about myself and my lack of even an attemp at self-directed learning. I feel like it is a tough task while being a full time student to go out of your way to do even more learning. As a senior going into the current job market and how competitive it is, I am going to strive to do all the self-directed learning I can in the upcoming months to give myself an edge on my peers and other competition. There is no lack of opportunity to take part in such activities as Michigan State does a great job of providing it's students with guest lectures and other forms of self-deticated learning. 

Student

I like to read novels while collecting impressive phrases and sentences into my journal, and I think this is also a type of self-directed learning. I have been doing this since middle school, and it helps me record the path of myself growing up. When I look back to the old phrases and sentences I've written down, they can remind me of the feelings I had when I was reading at that time. Because in different time periods, I would like different words and moods, and these are interesting things for me to recall. Also, many people will forget the books or stories they have read as time goes, but I can easily remember what I've read by recalling on those phrases and sentences I've collected.

Student

I feel that in this digital age, it is hard not to use self directed learning. There is incredible amount of information available on the web, whether it be on how to play the guitar, or getting certified in Google Analytics. Personally, I feel that I use self directed learning often in my daily life. I learned how to use photoshop through several YouTube videos, I learned how to cook myself a really good spaghetti dish, and I'm currently working towards getting certified in Google Analytics. I found that self directed learning is most effective when the lessons are of interest to me. If I have to teach myself how to do something that is not immediately of use to me in my life, then I find that the motivation to learn is not there. 

Student

I use self-directing as much as possible within my life because I find it to be an extremely important aspect with taking initiative and effectiveness. Like you already stated, in the real world nothing is given to you word-for-word like a prompt, you have to use tools and strategies to do your best work. My first example of self-directing I use in my initiation in the MSU advertising association. This gives me a head-start among others within my major and will help me learn key tools on how I can make myself stand apart from others. On top of that, it will also help me form connections with others in the business world, which is one of the main keys to success within my major, it’s all about who you know. Another self-directing tool I utilize is I read Forbes quite often, and always utilize a Thesaurus in almost every assignment I complete. This helps me learn many new aspects in the ever-changing world of business, and helps me to get creative with my words to sound more professional and formal. Another aspect I utilize in self-directing is that I try to travel as often as possible. This past May, I went on a study abroad trip to Ireland. Going to Ireland helped me expand my horizons and challenge the way I think and do things. Also, in the business world it’s incredibly crucial to know the way other countries internationally communicate, their customs, and their individual wants and needs. I also always keep up-to-date with current news and politics. This can greatly affect business as well, and keeping informed on what is going on in the world will only make you sharper on how to relate to others and get across a specific message in the best possible way.

While being a student, I believe it is very hard to participate in self-directed learning. Trying to juggle a decent social life, maintaing good grades as well as trying no to be dirt poor is draining. It is honestly the hardest thing I've had to do in my life so far, not that anything comes easy. However, I do believe it is necessary in regards to increasing knowledge and staying ahead of the game. My mom is a teacher, and she has to take a certain number of credits every few years to maintain her teaching certificate, which I believe is important. There are so many things that evolve, even over just a short period of time, and self-directed learning is vital towards improving general knowledge as a whole.

Since being at MSU, I have not taken much time to partake in self-directed learning.  I do read blog posts about the fashion/beauty industry, but I'm not sure if that counts.  For one of my classes this semester, I was asked to explore Google Analytics, and I taught myself how to analyze brands' websites and mobile, with the help of a few tutorials.  Also, for my job, I definitely learn as I go and I learn more about the company the more I work with it's corporate office.  Other than that, there's not much self-directed learning in my life.  After graduation, I will definitely be reading blog posts and watching videos to help me through my career.  

Student

I think self-directed learning is very important. I interned in a 4A advertising agency in Beijing last summer and my first assignment/project is making a video for a local IT company, I had never edited a veido and I started to watch tutorials on YouTube. After watching the first tutorial, I couldn't stop watching more and finally pushed myself out of my comfort zone to develop a new skill. And sometimes I find some interesting articles that show trends of the media industry, I will save it and read it during my spare time.

Student

The self-directed learning for everyone is very important. Every week, I will plan what I am going to do this week. Such as review, reading, watching a movie and meeting with friends. Self-directed learning is good for each of us, and we can not now confine ourselves to the knowledge we have learned, and we will continue to improve  our lives through self-directed learning.

Student

I currently do a lot of self-directed learning. Although I'm studying advertising management at MSU, I'm interested in many hobbies and fields outside of my major. These mainly include photography and painting - which I am completely self-taught in. To help me develop my skills in these two practices, I have found YouTube tutorial videos to be the most effective. Other than that, reading/watching interviews with other artists online helps provide insights into new techniques for me to try using which helps me and my work grow. Also meeting new people and creating in the same space as them helps me learn too in the same way that the interviews do because I am learning new strategies by observing others in the field and by gaining an understanding of new ways to approach my art-making. 

Student

The form of self learning that I take part in the most would be keeping myself up-to-date with topics going on within the world. Everytime I open up my laptop I find myslef scrolling through MSN or ESPN, and learning about anything that catches my attention. This has been very effective for me, especially on sports and political topics. Sports and politics are some of the widely discussed topics in today's world, and increasing your knowledge on these topics can be very insightful in our modern society.

Student

When I graduated from the high school, I owned lots of time to do the self-directed learning. In order to improve the efficiency of working, I always list a schedule for myself, then the rest time I will do the reading, watch motive and enjoy the student association for learning something. The self-directed learning is an important ability for growing up, it also a challenge to improve myself. When people cultivate the skill of self-directed learning, the self-worth can be achieved.

Student

Before college, I had a lot more time for self-directed learning. Throughout the last couple of years I have found myself only having time for my classes and the material that I am actually required to learn. Although, in the off-chance that I have a lot of free time, I like to read articles and blogs or watch (buzzfeed, tasty, delish) videos to learn new business, social or culinary skills. I think it is important to self-direct because there is more of a desire to implement that newly learned information and actually apply it in your life. 

Student

I've been doing something that realted to self-directed learning all the time. Using the search engine to search something I am interested or curious about is a really good way to do self-directed learning. Another thing I keep learning is Photoshop. At first, I knew nothing about ps and thought it would be complicated because of its system did not look like easy to self-learned. However, driven by the huge interest of it, I found some learning materials online and tried by myself. I followed the instructions and modified step by step. Although I am still a learner now, I got some skills on how to edit and design photos or posters with it.

Student

The only self-directed learning I am doing right now is reading a book called One Up On Wall Street by Peter Lynch. I want to get into stock trading and it explains the ins and outs of the best investing opportunites. Peter Lynch explains how Wall Street may not be able to find the best investing opportunites from the start but shows how you can find the next big investment. Self-directed learning is very, very important in everything you do. It shows that you are willing to take an extra step in doing something you are super interested in.

Student

I have a self-directed learning path while finishing my guided path to a bachelor's degree.  I am an early education professional and I am constantly attending conferences, like one in Howell next month.  I am interested in helping teachers continue on their paths and want to present at conferences.  I think by me still being in education classes, working in the field, and taking PD outside of the university it really gives me a more global view into education and how it can be applied in classrooms.  I have classes that teach me about approaches, theories, reasons, and becoming a teacher.  I go to the preschool program I work at and apply that to my work, and then to conferences and meeting where I learn new techniques.  I think it is important as an educator to also be a student, always learning, growing, changing, and developing, just like the children we work with.  I like being able to present back to my team members on what I have learned and how it can be applied in classrooms to improve our program and teachers.

Student

I do currently self-directed learning is reading. I don’t like read before. But from this summer, I found it’s a very interesting thing. My major is Economics, every week I am trying to push myself to reading financial magazine. There are many real-time cases in the magazine. Some of them helps me take a deeper look of book’s theory. I like reading right now.  

Student

The self-directed learning I have fond effective way for me is internship. This summer I went to a company in Shanghai, it’s brand of sale nail polish. They were invite 12 bloggers to design their own special products. I was working in marketing department. I contact our bloggers on social media, listed they ideas and reflected to our design department. And I need to did some research about launch content. During that time, I learned a lot about social media marketing from social media platform. I think it’s really useful.

Student

I currently am not performing any self-directed learning but I understand the importance of it. With the ability to learn after school a challenge as it is unguided but I have learned through school how I best learn. One of the ways that I do enjoy to self-direct my learning is when I'm interested in new technology or a product. Many hours are spent before I purchase a product researching and trying to understand the product that I may buy. From doing this I have found that I tend to enjoy this process of looking something up and trying to dive all the way down the rabbit hole. When I get into something like this I find it rewarding becuase I have gained knowledge on something that I can then take out into my career. You never know when you can use your knowledge in a profesional setting as we are all humans. You may run into a situation where your knowledge, no matter how ubscure, helps a situation become resolved. 

Student

I could not agree with this more. Every time I go home my parents tell me how different college was when they went and even reference the encyclopedia’s. They say all of this but neither have them really read since they were in college. I think now that we do not have to do as much reading about things that maybe we do not care as much about, we instead decide to read things that interest us. And this shows in other aspects of our lives as well. For example the work world, we as a generation we want a more open environment with demanding more open communication between levels, but in order to have these conversations you after to be reading and knowledgeable about what is happening in the world whether that be sports, books, or socially.  I personally read quite a bit but not romance novels I try to read articles or magazines as well as listen/watch Ted talks. I know it is not a lot but I believe even that little bit helps set me apart. 

Student

I like to think I explore self-directed learning everyday. I've always been a curious person so when I hear or see something I don't understand I'll look it up and figure it out. I'm a public relations minor and reading and writing are two ways to improve public relations writing skills. I'm an avid reader and writer, so I would also consider that a form of self-directed learning. I read press releases for fun. For me, self-directed learning is just learning about the things I'm interested in or passionate about. 

Student

I think this is a very interesting topic. I think it is important to always keep learning even if you're out of school. Learn more about your industry or pick up any interests. I have two techniques that work for me. First, during my recent internship, I took time to ask more questions and take notes. Its always important to learn from people higher up than you because they have more expereince. The second technique I found works for me is, researching on your own, just go to the computer and google anything. Its a big data filled world.

Student

I am currently trying to push myself to participate in more self-directed learning. I am quickly discovering new certifications that would help be able to market myself more. I not only want to appear knowledgeable to employers, but I want to be knowledgeable. I want to earn these certifications so that I can be among the best in my career field, regardless of GPA. Not only do I want to earn these certifications, but I want to be able to teach these certifications if need be. This is really the only thing that I do that could be considered self-directed learning. I have no clue if it effective yet, guess I will find out. 

Student

In hind sight, I find myself practicing self-directed learning often. Currently, and for the past two years, I am the President of the MSU Polo team. Being the President of anything comes with many taskes that fall on our shoulders. So when something new arises, how do I address that problem? It may be fellow teammates arguing or one of our ponies are injuried, so with this diverse range of problems how do I go about fixing them? Trial and Error. That is where most of my self-directed learning comes from. This is also a very hard when dealing with injured poines for instance, so I seek advice from alot of outside sources too, whether it be calling my vet for advice or just a more experienced horseman that may have delt with the same instance before. If I can't acheive sucess by phone call, I get someone to the barn to look at the pony and diagnose the problem so for futher reference I know what the problem is and how to fix it. 

Student

Self Directed Learning has always been a challenge that I loved to accept. Pushing yourself to learn without guidance or being forced by a parent or teacher is a valuable skill to have. Like the blog said, fact memorization is not a skill that is needed anymore. Knowing how to use technology to find those facts and keeping up on the lastest updates in the fast moving industry we are in is important. Although I don't currently do any freelance work, I taught myself how to use the Adobe Cloud Applications which come in handy for class, my resume and skills I can use at work. 

I took one course on basic coding and would like to learn more about that on my own.

I do currently working on my self-directed learning skill. I am taking web design course. In that class I am learning how to build a website in formal and informal way. Also, this course makes me how to write formal blog posts and social media marketing. This kind of technology does help to improve my social media skill. Technology becoming big part of our daily life. Building a website is very important because a lot of people seek for information through website. In order to find out error and any improvement this skill will help me to build a better website.

Student

I do free lance work for some non profits in Detroit where i have to use excel all the time. I consider myself to be very good at it, however to keep my self sharp I try to challenge my self. Wathcing videos is a good way to learn new things on excel as well, since there is so much to do it can be hard to remember it all, in that case you just have to keep doing it over and over until you have mastered it.

Student

I do currently do self-directed learning. I am into website building and graphic design so I am taking lessons from Adobe and chose to take certain elective classes at MSU to make sure I obtain that skill. There is so much to learn in this world that it cannot all be taught in a structured learning path. I believe you have to branch out and put in the effort if you want to have the one-up on others, especially in the workforce.

Student

Self-directed learning is important for people to achieve self-worth. Although we do not have to memorize all knowledge in brain, to learn more skills and information is necessary.

 

As many classmates do, reading is the most common way for me to do self-directed learning. “There are a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people's eyes.” From reading, we can contact new things and understand them with different point of views. There are diverse types of articles. I prefer the one that is thinking-provoking. If I could not understand a typical thing, I would search other information from other books or online. Sometimes I take notes or draw my imagination of a content. That really helps me to understand new things. I have lots of hobbies that I might not have time to do after graduating, but I learned them by myself. Study by reading or watching online and then practice when I’m free. To realize the value of life or enrich the spiritual world, never stop learning.

Student

I find that I don't have very much free time to read or learn informational things outside of school because I do a lot of creative things like video projects or music production, but these things do require self-directed learning too. I look at a lot of youtube tutorials on how to edit videos or music in particular ways and I watch other peoples videos and music videos to learn from as well. I have taught myself a lot of what I know about music and video design, even though my major is in audio and video production. I also would consider learning about current events and politics a form of self-directed learning, and I mostly do this through watching political comedians, so it is a way of learning as well as a leisure activity. I also stay up to date with news outlets and the newest movies, music and music videos, I think these things teach me a lot and are ways to both enjoy learning and to take lessons from things that seem like they are just for fun or curiosity. (comment for lesson #4)

Student

For my entire life I have been big into self directed learning. My brother always picked on me when we were kids because I would make my parents give me a topic and I would learn about it and write them a report with a visual. I can honestly say I don't go to such great lengths today, but I still do a fair amount of research on topics I would like to learn more about. Whenever I hear about something on the news that I don't know much about, I look into it and try to learn more. Aside from research, I like to read blogs and I am considering taking the HubSpot Inbound Certification course so that I can learn more and have more to offer in the future. Blogs are interesting because I get to learn things from a new perspective rather than just learning firsthand on my own. I find all of these ways to be very effective when it comes to self directed learning. What other methods could you suggest to help with this?

Student

The self-directed learning I have found effective is reading. Since January I have challenged myself to read 17 books this year outside of the reading necessary for class. Many of the books I read would be considered "self-help" books, which I have found that they have helped me better conceptualize my experiences and use them for growth. This form of self-directed learning has made me obssess over using my time to learn new things. In addition to reading, my roommate has convinced me to start listening to podcasts which she finds to be a great tool to learn new things.

Student

The self-directed learning I do is extensive research online.  Anything I am curious about, I look it up.  But I end up spending hours learning about something and not even realizing where the time has gone.  When researching something I want to know, it then leads me to other similar topics that I dive into as well.  Research and figuring things out is my self-directed learning.

Student

Self directed learning has been sitting on the back burner for me lately. Being a college student I have been so focused on what I need to learn for each class to get a 4.0. This is something I want to work on for my self to not only learn new skills but to be a more informed citizen. When I do have some free time to act in self directed learning I tend to look at videos especailly when learning new songs on my Ukulele. Another way I like to learn or stay informed is through blogs or articles on line. I hope to improve these skills and hopefully find something after college that I am interested in to self learn.

Student

I can honestly say that I have always engaged in self-directed learning. After reading this article, the first thing that came to mind for me was politics. I have been interested in politics since the 2008 election and my interest has definitely grown over the years. I love being informed and being able to argue my stand point on issues. I came into MSU as a political science major but changed shortly after first semester of that year. Now all of my research is done on my own time. I also like to cook, so I love looking up recipes online and trying them out. Self-directed learning is very important. It gives a person the opportunity to explore outside of what they already know which is never a bad thing. 

Student

That's pretty cool that you're attending a conference to improve your Wordpress skills, there's no doubt that it's a good skill to have. In my own life I've often engaged in self-learning on various topics, and recently I took a Python programming course from U of M through Coursera for free online. This was a great opportunity to gain valuable skills for free, and after spending several weeks doing it I definitely realized more than before that it's not nearly as hard as it seems if you just put your mind to it.

Student

After reading this blog I think I do not have self-directed learning, but after thinking about this I find out that I always watching videos and reading books about modern history. I do not know will this be a kind of self-directed learning, but every time I watching or reading I will try to think deeper and connect them with nowadays. For my personal experience, technology makes self-directed learning more easier and effective. There are a lot of videos on YouTube talk about modern history and these are more understandable and acceptable than paper books. 

Student

I conduct some sort of self-directed learning every single day, whether it be something as simple as Google-ing a recipe or complex as learning how to conduct an eAuction. I often find myself trying to answer any questions I may have through personal research before I seek out help from others. This is because I have the ability to filter through a lot information quickly rather than having to wait for a response from someone else. There are so many resources available through a Google search and what is best about this is the fact that there are many different ways information can be displayed online - visually, audibly, etc., so I can personally cater to my learning style. 

Student

As a technology developed, we have more opportunity to explore self-directed learning. And, I do self- directed learning through applications. For instance, I downloaded the application which can interconvert the text or PDF files. and, I always put some articles or book on that app and read. The other hands, when I have an important exam I move study guide or summary files on my phone to study anytime in anywhere. It is more convenient than carry out the paper book.   

Student

Things are constantly changing around us daily and it becomes our job to educate ourselves on what's new. I believe I engage in self-directed learning almost everyday especially with technology. Technology is one of the fastest changing things in our world and if you don't know how to work a new update then you're lost. I recently updated my iPhone to iOS 11 and it has so many new features that iOS 10 didn't have before. I had to teach myself and get comfortable with the new update because I couldn't go back to iOS 10 and I wasn't going to switch to Android, Google or Blackberry due to my inability to work a new update. Majority of the time if I don't know something I automatically go to Google before asking a person that probably does know the answer. Google is quick and usually reliable until it comes to some things that aren't very common. I recently bought my boyfriend a firestick and we jail broke it by using Youtube and when certain things on the Youtube video didn't work then we Googled what the prompt meant or what we need to do. After doing that I feel like I can jail break a firestick without help of Youtube anymore because it was simple besides remembering a few links that were needed. I like to teach myself how to do things on my own especially when it comes to technology but if I'm unsure I always turn to Google for help.

Student

Honestly, YouTube is my best friend when it comes to learning new things. I've used it durring internships to create the illusion that the sky was blue during a photoshoot, create a rollover effect on an interactive pdf and many more little projects. I even use YouTube turorials outside my professional envoronment to learn things like how to braid my hair and get a killer winged eyeliner. I enjoy the videos because I can pause them and go back to relearn something I didn't grasp the first time through, I could even work right along with the video if I needed to. It's an easy and convienient way to visualize what you are trying to learn. 

Student

I agree that formal education provides a baseline of understanding the basics as well as advanced challenges for students. After college we won't have that extra push to further our learning and complete work. It is going to be harder after college in the sense that it will be easier to become lazy. On the other hand, it's great that there is so much information on the internet available 24/7. It really comes down to the individual and their drive to continue learning and using all of the information such as videos, blogs, books, online courses and apps.  There are so many platforms to choose from that there isn't an excuse not to use them. 

Student

As the world is constantly evolving with new forms of media and new technology, it is only necessary to be a self- directed learner. It is almost impossible to keep up with the ever-changing trends and to stay on your toes sometimes you have to teach yourself new things to keep yourself up to date. I have always thought of myself as a self-directed learner. My first instinct when wanting to learn something new or to find out information I do not know is to search Google.

Over the summer I had an internship as an Event Planner and had to learn how to work with Adobe Suite. This was a program I had not been familiar with, but after many Google searches and YouTube tutorials, I became a somewhat expert in Adobe Suite. In fact, the skills I had taught myself regarding graphic design landed me the internship I have currently. Now, I am learning even more about Adobe Suite and increasing my skills which are allowing me to grow in my field.

Student

Since we started to go to school for long time ago, we have already used to be more and more independent step by step, day by day. For one simple example, from learning fewer words or numbers at elementary school to arranging our schedule on study during each week, we can do a lot stuff by ourselves without keeping to ask questions to others. For another instance, present growth of social medias help most of students and employees learn anything new, because of the ample resources are fully through the Internet.

Student

Now I had one online course. In this course, I need to do self-directed learning. I have to pay attention to my assignments and quizzes on time, watch the videos about lecture and read the articles. This course makes me learn more learn more recent technologies. The best benefit for the online course is that you can learn by your own degree. If you are good at this part, you can move very quickly. If you are not good at this part, you can move slowly. It depends on yourself. And also if I have some problems, I would like to find some article to read and learn it.
