I enjoyed this MOOC. It is very well-done and clearly covers the topics of mindshifting along with career advancement. Also--good illustrations and visuals/sounds which assist in the learning process.
Great course! This is a lot more general than Learning about Learning but is also useful nonetheless. I like the focus on keeping positive and being confident in your potential despite our weaknesses.

I learned a lot on this MOOC even if I have not yet read the book. The concepts were explained without getting bored and very interactive as well. Both Barbara and Terry did well in introducing this course to anyone who wants to take a second look on how they learning so far, and have appreciated them. Keep it up.

This course was a great follow up for "Learning how to Learn". Barbara Oakley is a great instructor. This course gives you valuable insights on how we should broaden our passions, rather than blindly follow them. Also, how career setbacks can mean new opportunities and how to control our emotions by labeling them.

Excellent course! The material and the presentation of the material was very captivating, and made the learning easy and fast. This was one of the courses I couldn't wait to get back to! Thank you for putting together a very helpful course for people who want to learn, but were burnt out and discouraged like me.
Mindshift was in the name...the topics discussed and lessons illustrated did exactly that...they shifted my mind. What I also found helpful were the bonus videos that provided memory tips. I am glad my sister recommended the class to me and I would recommend it to others. I'll definitely apply for other courses.

I took this and the companion Learning How to Learn as my first MOOCs. The clear images, effective visuals, and concise text with interesting learning features were just the right balance to get me started with on-line learning. Great job presenting useful and simple tools and advice to improve my own learning.

Excellent summary about learning throughout one's lifecourse. I personally was already familiar with most of the concepts presented, but enjoyed the course very much nonetheless.

it a breakthrough course. It is very recomended for anyone who has lost their jobs and realize that their carees fall down into obsolecense or it is not as well pay than before. We have to look inside in an ever changing world and understand thar learning for life is the new rule of growing up into our lives.
囿于我当下的英文写作能力，我在这次评价中选择使用中文。在本课程中，Dr. Barbara Oakley 和 Dr. Terrence Sejnowski 综合了各个学科领域的知识，将“思维转变”的可行性、重要性与方法通过生动有趣的语言阐述出来。每一节课程，虽然短小精悍，但是要想学习透彻是需要投入很多的时间的，例如：“如何克服拖延症？”与“How to get motivated”相关的知识点。通过本课程的学习，我掌握了一系列思维转变的方法以及明确职业发展的规划，相信通过不断的识记与练习知识要点，我能够顺畅的掌握“Mindshift”。同时，我也要感谢本次授课的两位老师，感谢他们对于知识的无私分享和精妙的课程设计。

Excellent course for anyone who would like to learn new skills, and is interested in the learning process, how the brain works, tricks to motivate yourself, understand how your brain works and take advantage even of what you conceived as "weak" points.

IMHO Along with Learning How to Learn, they are the most useful MOOCs you can take. They are an obligued doorstep for a life of learning. The cocktail of neuroscience, tips of learning and down to earth approaching become this course a modern classic. Take the course, buy the book and see what happens.
par Margarita B•
This is a course that encourages one to look at things differently, shift one's thinking and look at the choices one has been making. It is a valuable course to take as it touches upon a lot of areas that are important in learning and self improvement, and does it in a way that is easy and understandable.
par Prakash S•
I had a passion for learning. And I try to read and learn anything and everything. As a result I am not 'top-expert' in any particular topic. But this course reassured me that what I do is good for my mental health and everyone should keep learning for knowledge and skill irrespective of their own age.
par Juan D•
Excelente curso, entrega la motivación necesaria con excelentes herramientas para seguir el camino del aprendizaje, de una manera didáctica y entretenida, los profesores, Barbara y Terry, son amigables y su elocuencia hace más fácil comprender el contenido. Sin dudas, deberían cursarlo todas las personas.
par Mohammad H•
A foundational course for life and learning. The things you learn here, can be applied, practiced in everything you do. I think of this like a strong foundation to your dream home. A home with smart locks, granite countertops won't stand up long without a strong foundation, the same is true for learning.
par Alexandra M•
This course reinforced what was discussed in the related course of, "Learning How to Learn". I appreciate the cheesy jokes that help liven the episode. This also helps the information sink through. There was useful information from the optional videos as well on memory enhancement and the drive to learn.
par Ma. J L B•
This course is very interesting and helpful. It inspires me to learn more and discover my hidden potentials through mindshift and breakthrough obstacles. In also opens my mind that lifelong learning is really important in our changing environment. Learning is indeed fun, and this course really proves it.
par Felix M•
Cute and entertaining course with many useful bits of knowledge. The course isn't difficult and can be seen as a nice alternative to wasting your time watching Netflix. As the teachers would say: use this course to get your brain into a diffused thinking mode while you are recovering from harder classes.
