This course helps one understand how the brain works with regards to the learning experience. The course gives plenty of valuable information, ideas, and suggestions on how to be a more effective learner based on what neuroscience has learned about the learner's brain. All this is delivered throughout the course in an easy-and-fun-to-digest way. The complementary video interviews are also outstanding.
In my personal case, procrastination has been a lifetime issue and, before this course, I had grave misconceptions about procrastination to the point where I had literally given up on trying to defeat it. But this course gave me a whole new perspective about the procrastinating process (the cues, the routines, the rewards, and the beliefs) as well as valuable tools (e.g., the Pomodoro Technique) for dealing with it.
I congratulate and thank Dr. Oakley and Dr. Sejnowski for this excellent course.
As a footnote, I must also add that, as a college professor in Latin America, I unsuccessfully tried to convince a university I worked for to offer freshmen students a Learning to Learn course. Well, here it is! Kudos to the UCSD, Coursera, and the aforementioned professors!
