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

Written 10 months ago
This course of Learning how to Learn from the University of San Diego has taught me some very efficient learning techniques! I just completed my sophomore year of University (Leiden, Holland) and this MOOC was very useful for me to get to know more about hands-on learning techniques I can easily practice myself.

What I liked furthermore is that Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski offer - besides the hands-on techniques - some theoretical background and insight into how your brains work and why some of the techniques work how they work.

In addition, I really enjoyed the presence of extra optional content like recommended readings and extra interviews with interesting people which are really worth reading/watching!

The last positive thing I want to point out is that there is an option to do extra assignments in order to complete the course "with Honors". This is what I did and I really enjoyed going for this "extra mile". I even ended up talking with someone from India to help each other with learning! How great.

The only thing that could be improved a little bit in my opinion are the visuals and a more modern look of the videos. However, you can say the beauty of this course is in the inside ;)
