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.
Keith Okancompleted this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Excellent class for those trying to figure out the mystique of wines. There are a few mistakes in translation. I didn't feel like the professor was talking down to me. The last lecture on what alcohol does to the body was out of place. I learned a great deal from this course. Glad that is was offered!
