I found the Coursera site through a friend who had taken a course on it few months back. So I decided to take the plunge.
This website is brilliant really. It has courses on literature, music, culture, mathematics, science offered by places like John Hopkins, Princeton, Stanford, Edinburgh, Duke Georgia Tech. And the best part is, they are free!
I have enrolled for a course called “elearning and digital cultures” by the University of Edinburgh. The course hasn’t even started yet and we have a lot of interaction already taking place between us learners. I’m already learning a lot of new things. The forums, groups and blogs are super active with new threads of discussion being added everyday. To be honest, it’s a little difficult to keep up with all the information and I need to get more organised to keep a track of things to read – blogs, links, tweets and comments.
The course starts in January so anyone interested go take a look!
