I was so enchanted with the neurobiology course. I want to take it again as I was involved in 2 other projects. I feel that what I did learn changed my views of neuro biology forever and my views on psychology and therapy.
Eric Tsui is a powerhouse in the world of Knowledge Management. The course was comprehensive and has turned out to be a key building block in my skills in going on to do more study in data analysis.
Good opportunity to get or enhance your knowledge in interesting fields. And also to earn certificates. I have got several ones and will continue my learning. These trainings are in convinient manner, when you choose time and intensity for your education. Very useful and demanded portal.
I have been trying to get into a PhD program but most good programs require GRE and all which I cannot afford. The short courses I have done so far have been of exemplary help. I have gained so much that I count it all as a stepping stone to getting somewhere in the near future. It is the best and easiest place to learn. I advise regular scanning of courses available so you do not miss out.
We had a very small issue with the software used for completing the assignments, but otherwise everything was good and our complaints were dealt with swiftly.
I’ve taken some classes from MiT, Harvard, Darthmouth, and the Linux foundation. I’ve picked up several certifications and they have been a great help when applying for jobs.
If nothing else the ability to work on classes and take breaks from them when I need to has been invaluable. If you are working full time or have a family it’s a great way to reskill.
This is a brilliant learning resource. I especially like the fact that, for the courses that interest me, you can upgrade to a verified certification when it suits you.
Material well presented and easy to understand. I recommend printing the handouts and annotating as you go, it makes things so much easier.
Great place to improve your skills
Well organized, full of great content and very interesting courses.
I have followed one professional series and have learnt a skill I would have never been able to learn on my own. Besides the content, the quality of videos is excellent, and you have the feeling of following one teacher who is well-versed in the subject and who has a teaching degree (PhD).
