First MOOC that I can accomplish, even in my busiest days, because I'm motivated to learn the lessons taught in it and I like the teacher and class format (small videos and always repeating concepts).

I really appreciate the time these guys invested in this course and am willing to take it again if they re-explain some topics in order to refresh some things that with time haven't stayed in my mind.

Some interesting information is presented that could be potentially helpful to students, teachers, & curriculum developers. However, there is little of practical value beyond a few simple statements, e.g. "Spread out your studying over several days." Or "Trying to remember is better than re-reading." Additionally, the course does not practise or model what it preaches.

Most of the information I learned was either already known to me or not that effective. I prefer more exercises and practical methods that would teach me discipline and let me implement the methods I've learned. The tests after each material are good and helpful for remembering the information; however, they are not practical to implement the methods themselves

The content is nice -- a few useful techniques with some scientific foundations, but why Barbara after EACH video reminds us her name, and this strange arrows with very unpleasant sound in the start of the videos about chunking -- why? There are a lot of things I can not understand in the production part, but overall course is worth taking in 1.5x+ speed.

I found difficult to navigate within the course and the style of the course is not very modern. I felt difficult to follow the whole program, which might be also linked to my level of English that might not have been good enough, considering the technical vocabulary used in the program. However some interesting and very concrete tips to learn

This will be an excellent course for undergrads and high school students but not much in depth knowledge and learning strategy for higher levels of education.
Teachers show mastery on their subject matter , though their presentation style is not genuine and naturally animated, to the point that it may feel boring.

Interesting enough if you do not have any previous experience with the techniques.
You learn about the 2 different modes of Learning - Focused & Diffuse.
Learn more by Remembering/Recalling, Testing yourself, learning from mistakes and using metaphors or analogies to understand concepts.

it has a lot of nice information about the brain and ways of study, but this whole course is a way of procrastinating.
I feel like it could have been summed up really much better into written text and finished at a much faster rate.

Too school focused, I wish there was a version to help people that aren't being tested. I thought it would have more information about how to find useful information instead of just remembering what was presented to you.

The course has useful information, but I think it was a little superficial and too focused on studying for exams, instead of focused on studying for your professional life or just intelectual self development.

While the instructors may be well versed in their fields, I felt the course took too long to get to the meat of the issue. I suppose I wanted a faster-paced course without a lot of hand-holding.

this is a good course but if you think better and deeply you will understand that deep inside you your self know this things but maybe you did not do in daily life.

Didn't learn as much as expected about learning how to learn. Maybe my expectations were too high.

Really basic, with some interesting stuff but could be reduced to a third of the time...

Very basic and useful only for the students in high school... not for professionals.

Boring techniques for remembering.
Nothing related to learning or understanding.

This is definitely a course for someone that has finished a higher degree. if you've done that, there's a very big change that you already know about 90%-95% of the techniques presented in thous course.

ME DECEPCIONA LA FALTA DE TRADUCCIÓN AL ESPAÑOL.
NO puedo responder las preguntas porque no sé inglés.
Espero se solucione este problema para continuar.
