Working in online small groups, you can also learn from others about the challenge of changing behavior. An e-health guide will assist you and your group in facilitating the learning process.


Task A-Clarify Your Issues about Change
Task B-Lower Your Resistance
Task C-Enhance Your Motivation
Task D-Makes Plan for Change
Task E-Keeping Working on Change

Keep an online journal of your path to change.
Share your learning experiences in an online group.


Review your journal as you do the course and download it for further reflection. Your online journal is kept private from other users. (You are not expected to share anything that you feel is confidential or personal). Use the discussion board to share your learning experiences and give feedback to one another, ask questions, get support and exchange ideas. Your e-health guide can also provide you with individual guidance.
