I love MOOCs! Well, bully for me!
MOOCs are Massive Open Online Courses. The ones I do are all free and each takes about a month to complete. The first I did was called Managing My Money and it was about basic personal finance from creating a household budget to looking at the Chancellor of the Exchequer doing the same thing on a much larger scale. Since then I have studied a couple of Shakespeare's plays, Kitchen Chemistry and Understanding Numbers for Science.
This week I have started Nutrition and Well-being. It's organised by the University of Aberdeen. It's entirely on-line and there is no written work to submit but there is a very active on-line discussion board. There are activities to complete and videos to watch. There's no exam and no qualification, just the sheer joy of learning something new.
Since I left school forty five years ago most of my learning has been directed towards career goals and I see these courses as a chance to re-explore things which I abandoned all those years ago.
I want to keep my brain going! I love crosswords (and I'm just learning to do cryptics) and sudoku. I enjoy writing for my two blogs. . MOOCss are another way of doing this. So I'm off now to look at a few macronutrients. See you later
