How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
I just watched some videos, specifically about studying/note-taking, and when they explained the cornell note taking thing they completely missed the point of it.
The left column is for clues/question where corresponding to the material on the right column, then you have to cover the right column and answer the questions like they were on a flashcard. I've only wathced a few videos and there's just a (imho) kinda big error, talking about something simple in a wrong way.
