My entry last week on online learning was interesting, because I basically did a bit of work for this weeks blog entry… oops. Oh well, so there’s a thing called MOOC, which stands for Massive Open Online Course; and it’s essentially what I showed last week. My opinion on the matter still stands, it’s a pretty awesome thing, I mean like I said last week, my teacher is Stan Lee! I reckon that’s pretty rad. MOOCs are recent things that started gaining popularity in 2012.
I love websites that offer learning online, it makes things easier, and especially since today’s day and age we’re modern and learning online is something that we can do since education is catching up with us. I’ve used many learning websites online, and I even follow a few studyblrs (which is like studying inspiration, a lot of the blogs dedicated to this focuses on images of people studying, tips on how to study, links to websites for studying a language or a topic, and so on and so forth. I follow Little Study Spot, Poly Glot and Studyign, there’s a medium article on it) on tumblr.
I don’t look at book review often, usually it’ll be from a friend or if the writer has written other books. But reviewers do have some importance from said friends on whether a book is a good enough read to pass on information, and in one way or another a friend can be a book reviewer. I told my friends to read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, and in that I’m a book reviewer; but we as ‘common folk’ don’t hold ourselves to that profession as someone who is a reviewer, and that’s why when we think of book reviews we think of places in newspapers, online, and the likes.
I love watching videos online, especially if they’re trying to teach me something. That’s why I look up tutorials on YouTube a lot of the time, when I had long hair or when I did my make up a lot of the time I’d watch those types of tutorials or when I’m stuck in a certain part of a video game I’ll watch a walk through of how to do something. But tutorials on YouTube give me life… not literally, figuratively. But it’s awesome, I do recommend tutorials for anything you need help with. I also love not just tutorials but learning things, I watch Vsauce a lot of the time for sort of my ‘information fixation’ and sometimes Buzzfeed… but it’s mainly Vsauce.
