I’m a strong believer in continuous education to get better and to make more contribution. In addition to training at work, I usually add reading and personal training.
For example, I’m taking a Marketing Course by Wharton University. The contents here is part of their MBA course. This is a 2 months course with 3 Quizzes and a final exam. The course is free, I’m taking the “Signature Track” for a small fee, that means if I pass 75% or better, they issue a Certificate.
I learnt a few things so far on MOOC courses:
First the content is better than I expect. The professors in my Marketing course did put in effort in both their slides as well as their videos to bring the message across.
Second, online learning requires lots of discipline. Most of us are busy and it takes effort and a good mind set to stay with the course till the end.
To keep my momentum, I already sign up for two courses below after the Marketing one that ends in mid December.
My aim is to takes course that can add values to my professional career as well as those that are either practical or different. What we leant in one area can be applicable to a different field.
What training have you taken recently that you really enjoy?
