Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) from the world's best Universities

Post by The Strawberry Girl on Mon Aug 29, 2016 11:56 am

Hi, all!

This is my first topic here. I couldn't resist! It's been four years since the first time I ever enrolled for a mooc at www.coursera.org. Let me tell you that it's huge fun, plus a great way to expand one's skills and knowledge. I have successfully finished four mooc's so far, most of them related to my profession, yet it's been a while since the last course I enrolled to.

Today I got an e-mail regarding course suggestions. And it really made me smile. After so much time I fooled around the website and I ended up enrolling to four (4, yes!!) courses. I don't really have that much of a free time, but those courses are interesting and I want to get as much as possible from them. After all, the new coursera rules regarding certification have changed. If you want to get a verified certificate, you must pay a fee. Yet, you can still attend a course for free, if certification is not a priority, or even purchase a certificate within 180 days of successful completion of the course (i.e. you will have assessments, quizzes and possibly a final test.)

Of all four courses I enrolled to, this specific one resonates to the attributes of this forum. I'm sharing it with you. I suggest that, at least, you take a look. A course on happiness, and how to reach it with exercises and scientifically proven methods yayyy!!! Very Happy If, by any chance, anyone of you signs up for this course, let me know. Since I can't afford a certificate at the mo, I'll do my best to get the most out of it (and, of course, apply the new knowledge in my everyday life.)

It starts today:

https://www.coursera.org/learn/happiness


We can use this thread to post info on MOOC's that catch our attention.

See you in class mates!

Well what do you know. I want to do something with writing and I have made a wish the last full moon. So I enrolled the creative writing course! Anything that comes my way is a bliss!

Wow thanks for sharing this Strawberry! I had heard whispers of "coursera" before with regard to programming courses, but I didn't know it was such a huge thing! I really don't have time to take any courses now Neutral but I enrolled in two anyway Razz -- the Happiness one you posted and a Positive Psychology one. (Though Cryptography I and II look really, really cool...) I think they must have changed it, though, as I tried to do the first assessment of Positive Psychology (just a 5-question quiz...off the top of my head, ahem) and it wouldn't let me submit without paying. Sad

I do actually think I'd consider paying for a course in future, as the certification is great, but I wish I had that quiz graded so it could tell me I got 100% . Cool Razz

Anyway, I really love the happiness course! I watched the first video and oh he is lovely isn't he... It's so nice to have all these resources and all this research in one accessible place. I love you
