MOOCs

Over the past few months I have developed a real enthusiasm for MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).  The choice of courses can be quite overwhelming, although there are useful aggregator sites such as Class Central and MOOC List that can help you narrow down your search for the right subject.

I’ve signed up for a handful of these courses and have created a dedicated MOOC Courses page to keep track of what I’m studying.  At this stage I’m not sure if all the courses I have enrolled in will be suitable for my existing level of knowledge.  For example, some of the courses cover subjects I have already studied at university.  I’m hoping the courses I have selected will provide a combination of revision on new information. The great thing about them is that they are free to enrol in, so it’s easy to drop ones that turn out to be unsuitable.
