Self-learning (self-study) is conducted alone by the individual. It involves the use of one, or more or all the learning media presented in the classification of learning media, with which it may be useful to combine with certain learning tools.
This can take place in private (e.g. the home, car), general public (e.g. train, aeroplane, in the countryside) and job-related settings/environments.
