A new door to higher education has opened with the arrival of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and university-level courses are now accessible to all learners around the globe.
With 2 months left in 2016, there’s still time to boost your career by learning new skills.
Learning a new language from scratch is an exciting and sometimes daunting process, but the rewards and benefits make it totally worthwhile.
If you are like most MOOC students, your primary purpose for taking free online courses is probably a combination of learning for the sake of curiosity and using your new knowledge to change or advance your career.
In the United States, our educational systems are built on time—12 years of elementary and secondary education (13 if you count kindergarten), two years for an associate’s degree, four years for a bachelor’s degree, two years for a master’s degree, and two to about five years for a PhD.
