TOP REVIEWS FROM MINDSHIFT: BREAK THROUGH OBSTACLES TO LEARNING AND DISCOVER YOUR HIDDEN POTENTIAL
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.
It was really interesting to take course in Mindshift. I learned many things about memory, got many tips om how to focus my attention and that every failure is not a real failure but opportunity.
I really enjoyed the first course, Learn 2Learn. The female professor is great but the boring old guy should have been kicked out of the course, as he do not provide anything of value for the course.
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.
