I have decided to take three MOOC's over the next four months and track my experiences and my learning objectives! I have selected a few classes to take and I'm excited to start learning about my new subjects!
For my learning (and to demonstrate this isn't just "for fun"), I have created three main objectives that will designate success
- Dedicate 5 hours a week per class.
- Be able to apply concepts outside of class.
- My own feeling of concept mastery.
I know that number three seems pretty flimsy, as it is very hard to measure. I believe however that a lot of what education gives us is simply the belief and confidence that we are educated. As a marketer I have to argue that there is a lot of added value created that does not come from a classroom or textbook. Whether you learn statistics in Harvard or a community college, it's the same topic, right?
Here are the classes that I have enrolled for:
