This course provides a number of techniques for improving your learning across the board; not only do you learn which study techniques are effective, but you also learn a bit about how your brain works and how you can make the best use of its features and quirks, as well as mitigate problems that arise from its circuitry such as procrastination. Instructors are enthusiastic and clear and the content is expressed at an introductory level without sacrificing its practical benefits. Of course, it is up to the user to apply the skills learned in this course to other areas. All in all a worthwhile course for anyone looking to improve their learning.

Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential

Written 5 months ago
I found this course to be slightly less useful than its companion, but there is plenty of worthwhile material to be found as well. Additionally, this course utilizes concepts from Learning How to Learn which makes it worthwhile as a review as well as a fresh perspective on the overlapping material. Of course, there is a plenty of content here that is useful in its own right. Among the topics covered were the importance of broadening ones passions, making the most of online learning via MOOCs, as well as a number of topics pertaining to careers and life enhancement. Again, the instructor was wonderful and clear. The material was presented at a very accessible level and the commitment required to complete the course is surprisingly low relative to its benefit.
