Do You MOOC?

cowsFree, online, university-sponsored continuing education has been around for many years, but there hasn’t been much to attract me to the offerings. Then, suddenly, BOOM! Like buses, along come a bunch, all at one time, that are headed to places I need to go to research my work-in-progress, so lately I’ve been attending MOOCs at Coursera and FutureLearn. Check ’em out. They may be offering something you can use, too. (Click on logos to visit sites.)

    I’m going to a continuing ed class tomorrow! A 2 day workshop on Adobe Photoshop that I think will help me a lot with my job. I’m excited.

    • Let me know how that goes. I haven’t done anything with Photoshop. So far, I’ve been able to get by with built-in software, freeware, tips picked up from bloggers, and farming out a special request to one of my kids, who runs a different OS and thus has access to stuff I can’t use. I’ve probably reinvented the wheel several times, but I don’t mind tinkering.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    • It’s pretty good, so far. My first experience there was with a course that had a lot of video lectures by the professor and guest speakers: all substantial sessions, and I had at least one “Aha!” moment in each one. A “peer review” assignment at the end left something to be desired, but that was a minor weakness that didn’t detract from the overall high value of the offering. I plan to watch all the videos again.

      Thanks for visiting, and commenting!
