So, a couple of weeks ago I discovered MOOCS, Massive Online Open Courses. Moocs are free courses that you can take with universities. There are courses on practically everything and most courses offer a certificate at the end. I have registered for countless moocs, including 1920s Hollywood Cinema with Wesleyan University, Social Psychology with Wesleyan University and Poetry in America: Whitman with Harvard University. The time span of the courses varies but most are six weeks, with an assignment each week and one final test. All the courses are taught with lectures, interactive quizzes and videos. I’m halfway through my Social Psychology class right now, and I’m really enjoying it. What could be better than learning about something interesting, for free, with 400,000 other people around the world and picking up a certificate along the way? So if you have a bit of free time on your hands, I would totally recommend MOOCS.

Oh and we found the receipt for the camera, so we are going to send it off to get repaired. 😉
