I enjoyed this course very much. I am 64-years-old and this course taught me that you can learn anything new no matter what age you are. I am now broadening my passions and learning is a lot more fun.
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.

This course has been a valuable primer to any further topic one may or may not struggle to learn next. It develops a foundational attitude for studying anything at all despite one's background. Creative and learning confidence are what anybody can expect to acquire after completing the course.
Very useful and insightful. I'm in my 20s and have no idea what to do in my future. This course helped me a lot (as well as the related MOOC "Learning How to Learn") in creating better study skills, increase productivity and rate and efficacy at which I acquire new knowledge. Highly recommend.
The course is completely awesome. it enhances my hidden potential and projects in front of my eyes, and helped me to take care of my immersive learning, i really wanted to thank the professeurs for making the topics an interactive one by explaining about how science works within one's brain !

Clear, concise, simple and well paced. This was a pleasant surprise and a good find. If you are frustrated with yourself and think you can't learn anything, this course will help you debunk that myth and give you some tools to understand that you can learn anything you want to. Great MOOC!

I really enjoyed the the insights I garnered from this course. The scientific explanations as to how the brain functions and affects our learning process was superb. I can't overstate how much I enjoyed this course! This should be the first essential course anyone and everyone should take.
I loved doing this course. It has really opened up my thinking to additional learning. Thank you for opening my eye and my willingness to learn. I too can do this, have always been able to do this and will continue to learn.
I am shortly due to retire but continuous learning is my passion.
This course is fantastic. It builds naturally where Learning to Learn leaves off. Dr. Oakley shows us that it's possible for anyone to broaden their passions to learn anything. I've also found in useful in reviewing material from Learning to Learn as some of the concepts are reinforced here.

It was helpful to understand how the learning world works. I have a slow learning and I always thought that it was something wrong. I am learning English and sometimes time I feel upset wit myself, but I know now that I need to keep my mind in a good direction and keep myself practicing.

This course taught me so much on life how things work when it comes to the human mind and how to be creative even when your a slower learner than others. It also taught me how to process information better and what methods to use when you are having a difficult time with specific things.

I find this course excellent, it has helped me a lot mostly on trying to study things I wasn't able to do before and also the way to beat procrastination. Dr. Barbara has thought me nothing is impossible to study no matter what's your age or whether you've studied something different.
par Jason V•
I love this course. I had taken the 'Learning How to Learn' course as one of the first I had ever done on Coursera and really enjoyed it. This course was very good, as well. The lectures were well done and very useful. Kept the ideas very practical and fun. Excellent job folks!!!

This was a very helpful course that I recommend for everyone, no matter what your career is. If you are new to online learning, this is a great first step. It really helped me get into a learning mindset and open up to new experiences, which I think will be very helpful in my future.

It is an awesome MOOC! I took it at the right time and loved the super energetic instructors. The engaging ways they convey the learning to learners, I am afraid that I will be getting bored when I resume my real-life classes after lockdown. A great course, for learners of every age.
Great followup to learning how to learn which was my first ever Mooc I took, it was great refresher about some key ideas about learning with many new ones; I've learn about putting a label on a feeling which was groundbreaking for me, also I've learnt about meditation ... and more!!
par Grace C•
It is a very interesting, entertaining and full of information with valuable keys to improve in the process of a change of mentality with respect to our careers. With scientific bases they show what is valuable in all our experiences and how useful they are when making life changes.

I think every student and every person who want to know how to use your effectively and fully and how to tackle with troubles and how to be that person who know from where to get help and from where to start should take this course . The mentors are brilliant and too good and best.

Good day to you,
kindly advise,after course completion i was ask to make payment to collect certificate .
A friend completed hers yesterday and she got her certificate without making any payment.
I will appreciate your urgent response.
par Ricardo B V•
Great, worth the time spent, but you need to make a commitment with yourself to apply what you learned, otherwise, it won't help. It gives good hints and encourages you, since it mentions that many things we see as faults in ourselves aren't really that, and have a possitive side.
par Yelena V•
the course gives very practical and useful tips on how to create a mindshift towards learning. it is empowering, motivating and provides advice on making the big decisions in life, such as career choice. overall, I am very satisfied and would recommend this course to everyone.
