The Internet can feel like a thrilling and unpredictable ride. You often will never know what changes will be made, whether it be a new and popular Internet meme, a video that goes viral unexpectedly or a change in a search engine algorithm. These small changes might devastate some online businesses, but they don't have to. My name is Max Pitt and I see myself as an Internet warrior. I have dabbled in everything, from blogging to video creation. While I am not a professional, I feel like I understand the Internet on a level that can allow me to help online businesses that want to operate in this unpredictable, but highly profitable, digital world.
If you have always wanted to learn how to play chess, you may have found it difficult to either teach yourself or find someone close to you that knows how to play. Because of this, you may be considering signing up to take lessons through an online school. If so, ask the following questions before you sign up to start learning more about the online course and its lessons.
1. What Are the Credentials of the Chess Instructors?
One of the first questions you should ask before signing up to learn chess online involves the credentials of the instructors. Are the instructors amateur or casual players who simply love the game and want to teach others? Or, are they professional, dedicated chess players who have played in tournaments and have achieved a high level of play?
While there is nothing wrong with learning chess from an amateur or casual player, you may not receive a full education on the intricacies of the game as you would with a professional or master player. The latter type of instructor that has participated in tournaments has most likely taken on some of the best chess players out there, so they may be able to give you pointers on moves and strategies that a casual player may not be aware of.
2. Are Practice Games Done with Other Students or the Computer?
One part of any good online chess course is the ability to practice the skills, moves, and strategies that you have learned during each lesson. In regards to this, another question you may ask is whether the practice games are done with other students or the computer.
While practicing with a computer can help you learn the technical skills required to play chess, it may not expose you to the nuances of strategy. When you play against an actual person, even if it is done virtually, you must get inside the person's head and learn to adapt to their way of thinking when moving pieces, as well read how they like to play the game.
Asking the above questions for signing up for lessons can give you a better idea as to the structure of the courses, as well as give you an idea of what to expect. For more information, contact a business that offers online chess lessons to get a better idea of what they offer and how they can help you learn to play this intricate game.Share
