MOOCs interest group for Brent u3a
To enrol in any Brent u3a learning/interest group, you should become a member of Brent u3a. See the 'membership' link.
Online Courses and Learning – (Massive Open Online Courses, otherwise known as MOOCS!!)
Rita reports: This autumn, I attended a London Regional u3a workshop about MOOCS, facilitated by Ian Hunt from Perth u3a. Many organisations have developed a whole range of courses covering diverse topics at a variety of levels and durations – something for everyone!! And the good news is, the majority of MOOCs are free. Fees are only payable if you want to obtain a certificate.
MOOCs are something you can do entirely on your own and at your own pace and convenience.
Some u3as have set up a 'MOOCs Interest Group'. Members decide to explore a subject in depth and then find the relevant MOOC. After the lecture or course has been followed online, there is a group discussion on its contents.
If anyone in Brent u3a is interested in doing this, please contact me: open Rita's email in your email app.
