Tibetan Buddhist Meditation and the Modern World: Lesser Vehicle

Written 3 years ago
I could only last until the second week. It is so academic, it is very hard to understand and listen to without falling asleep. It is not engaging. Watch video after video lecture. There is no interaction. The message board was the most entertaining feature. Not all in house lectures should be online learning experiences. You must engage your audience, have activities, discussions etc. This course could have been much better. I am a Buddhist and an educator for many years. I was hoping that what was taught would grab our interest, hold it and make us want to delve into more information on our own. I tried to stick it out, but it was painful.

Teaching Adult Learners

Written 3 years ago
I teach adults every day, but yet I learned so much from the instructors. This was an excellent course. I would highly recommend it and any other courses from Australia's Open 2 Study.

Indigenous Studies: Australia and New Zealand

Written 3 years ago
I learned so much from this course. I loved every minute of it. Great, interactive learning. The problem with many MOOCs is that there is no interaction. My favorite place for free learning so far is Australia's Open 2 Study. I highly recommend their courses. I have taken two so far and they both have been superior.
