Lifetime Learning: Discovering MOOCs

I have three EDx certificates, one from the Cornell class, one from Smithsonian University, and an art history certificate from the University of Madrid. By the end of the year, I’ll have a certificate in the “Science of Art Restoration” from Trinity (just completed), and by January, a certificate in Civil War history from Columbia. Finally, also in January, I’ll have a certificate in a class called “American Government” taught by professor Thomas Patterson from Harvard. Yes, I finally passed a Harvard MOOC. Phew. How do I know I’ll earn these certificates? The course page offers a chart of my progress and I am only a few lessons away from finishing the last two MOOCs. My progress chart shows that I’ve already made a passing grade. It remains to be seen if and how this education impacts my life, my work, my world, but I know one thing for sure. I like learning, and finding a way to do that has renewed my interest in keeping it a lifetime pursuit.
