6 REASONS WHY MOOCS ARE AWESOME!

MOOC or massive online open course are the courses which give you open access to material from various sources in world online. Text, videos or any other way they think they can help us learn. They comprise everything a conventional course does like tests, quizzes etc. and much more.

LEARN FROM THE BEST 

You can learn from the best that come. Imagine learning from faculty of Ivy League (EDX) some of which are Nobel laureates or from top faculty of top colleges from India like IITs and IIMs (NPTEL). So wherever you are no complaints about sub-standard faculty. If you want to fly you can bad faculty aint stopping it.

GEOGRAPHY ISN’T STOPPING YOU

So what there is no Spanish teaching institute in your area? Anways isn’t it better to learn from native speakers? So just hop on ride of MOOCS and live your life. Communication is reducing distances why should it not in education?

LEARN WHATEVER YOU WANT

If technology student wants to learn psychology or a liberal arts wants to study quantum physics why should they be stopped? While a conventional educational system constraints you to a narrow field or some allied ones. Here sky is the limit. So no more boring monotonous education you are your master.

LEARN WHEREVER AND HOWEVER YOU WANT 

So you waste 3 hours every day commuting don’t have enough time to squeeze in a new course in your tight schedule. Well you don’t need to you can now utilise your 3 hours. Even if you want to learn while eating, walking nobody is there to stop you

NOBODY IS JUDGING YOU

If you are embarassed about taking some course at your college. You are welcome here because nobody needs to know and nobody judges you on who you are, where you from and what you do? So if your public persona is of cool kid who doesn’t like science or math or programming you are welcome to do it here in secrecy

YOU CAN QUIT WHENEVER YOU WANT

You don’t like the course you started. Please leave. Most of them are free anyways so no financial burden and nobody is going to blame you for being a quitter since you know nobody knows. And you can keep doing it till you find the course you love.
