Coursera Course

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 11:02 pm

I just completed a Coursera online course “Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools of the Trade.” It was about the parts of speech and how to use them to write good sentences and paragraphs. I thought it would help me get better at writing and be a motivation but rather than motivating me, I found it doing the opposite. I wasn’t able to get my mind around writing sentences to fit into the formula of the assignments and I did not pay sufficient time reading the material. I think maybe online studies are not such a good way for me to try to learn but then I found more Coursera subjects that sounded interesting to me, so I am going to try again. I enrolled in a course on songwriting, mental health and one on psychology. I also re-enrolled in one on Modern Poetry, which I had started to take but got too far behind with reading and quit before I even did one lesson. By the time it starts again I should be more used to doing this kind of course and better able to keep up. The songwriting course starts soon and I am looking forward to that. I will blog about my progress with it.
