The Science of Success: What Researchers Know that You Should Know

Written 3 months ago
The Science of Success is a well-rounded course. In many ways, it is similar to the popular MOOC "Learning How to Learn". It is short, interesting, and comprehensive.

The course consists of lectures that cover the keys to success that have emerged through a comprehensive review of successful people.

Students are introduced to concepts like importance of a positive mindset, significance of perseverance and what separates experts from non-experts among other topics.The best thing about the course is that it guides you on developing an ACTION PLAN for identifying and achieving goals that matter to you.

I have benefitted highly from taking this course and I would recommend it to everyone.

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

Written 3 months ago
This MOOC will change your mindset about learning. I have learned a lot about learning during this course. It is well-structured. I loved the optional readings and interviews because these helped me gain a deeper understanding of the concepts.

I have unintentionally practised some of the methods taught in this course in the past and I would endorse them like spaced repetition helps you recall materials much quicker and working on difficult problems helps you become a better and faster problem solver.

I hope to incorporate the teachings from this course in my study routine.

The Science of Everyday Thinking

**Beware: This course has the potential to change YOU**

When I saw the trailer for his MOOC, it was nothing short of awesome, so I enrolled right away. Today, I am glad I did that. This course is a great example of what MOOCs should be and can be.

This course talks about the biases that prevent us from making informed decisions. Therefore, it has roots in Science and Psychology. We live in a world where politicians, salespeople, and marketing agencies (to name a few) use different psychological factors to influence our thought process and we end up making bad choices (unintentionally) . This course informs you of those so that you can make better decisions. Decisions that are backed by reason and not just your intuition. This is your guide to knowing a little more about your mental limitations and how you can be more aware of them.

It will help you develop a rigorous method of finding stuff out using the Scientific Method on your own.



The professors follow a very interactive mode of instruction. You never feel as if they are university professors because they 'run the show' as if it were a program on National Geographic or the History channel. They have tried everything to make the content engaging and interesting. They visited notable people across the globe so that the students can learn from the masters themselves and that surely would have taken a lot of their time. The interviews, exercises and discussions were interesting.

I strongly recommend this MOOC

Work Smarter, Not Harder: Time Management for Personal & Professional Productivity

Written 2 months ago
As far as MOOCs go, I have not seen a worse design. This course which is supposed to be taken over 4 weeks will actually take you at most around 2 hours to complete. The tips given in this course are quite basic and there is not any content that was new to me because you can find the same and better content for free on the internet. Therefore, paying for such a course does not make sense to me.

However, the tips given in the course are useful and their utility can not be denied. Try the course but I would suggest not paying for it.

The following topics are covered in 5-10 minute long videos:

-Importance of making a work plan

-Importance of tracking and estimating time

-How to avoid getting burnt out during your job
