Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

Written a year ago
So much has already been said about this truly magnificent course that I don't think I can add anything substantial. If only most of us had access to this material and guidance during our formative years in education. However, it is never too late to unlearn bad study habits; though don't expect it to be easy - especially if you have been doing it for years. I shall certainly purchase a certificate as a token of my appreciation to everyone involved in putting the course together. A tour de force!

How to Code: Systematic Program Design - Part 1

Written a year ago
This is the first programming MOOC I have ever taken. Prior to taking it, I had attempted to read programming books with the intention of learning how code. It didn't take long before I realized that I hated reading books about programming. Not because the books I read were uninformative (though there are plenty that I could nominate as morbidly boring) but rather they lack the type of interaction to be found in a MOOC; which as a beginner is crucial because when you get stuck you need help from your peers.

The main lesson to take away from this course certainly has to be systems thinking which is emphasized throughout by the professor. As I build up my programming experience with each day that passes, I am slowly beginning to appreciate the massive advantages it offers. Whenever I wrote a program that didn't do what was required, more often than not it was because of adopting "verbal reasoning" as I punched in the code. As soon as I started asking myself the "why" and "what" certain pieces of code in the program were doing, I quickly found where I'd veered off course.

As a beginner, I did this course slower than most (just over a month) but I believe the extra time I spent on it will certainly pay dividends in the future. To sum up, I rate this MOOC very highly and look forward to completing SPD2 and SPD3.

The Science of Everyday Thinking

Fantastic course! So much has already been said about the course that I don't have anything substantial to add.

Great for learning about how a human being's mind works.
