I came across the Coursera’s Learning How To Lean MOOC while checking the list of the 50 most popular Moocs of alltime. On that list, Oakley’s MOOC was at the number one position. I was a bit surprised at first to see this kind of MOOC being the most popular, but after a second thought my surprise vanished. After all, isn’t the audience attending MOOCs supposed to be genuinely interested in learning? In some way that was a confirmation.
Beside the fact that it caught my attention, the title intrigued me. For the past years, I’ve never stopped learning new things every day, and my interest in learning has only grown more with time. I believe life to be a journey full of an infinite amount of learning, and the challenge reside in learning the right thing, in the right way. The MOOC seemed to unlock the secret on becoming an effective learner, and that was more than enough for me to enroll.
