I’ve just completed another MOOC, this one from the platform FutureLearn.

That was about the social media, with some hindsight of its structure and a whole lot of good points about the use and the perspective of said media in our life. The people at the University of Southampton, starting with Dr. David Millard and Dr. Lisa Harris did an amazing work, concentring in a 2-week course a lot of information.

I know, there are a lot of different platforms and an incredible number of courses available. I also know that there are still 24 hours in a day, no matter how good you are.  That said, I suggest this course for everyone who want to start to understand more on the subject. Like it or not, the social media aren’t over yet.

I like to underline another thing about this course. It’s free. FutureLearn is still keeping up the best premise for such kind of initiative, thinking about the need to educate people about a great variety of subjects. Free means that more people can understand more ideas, leveling down of step difference made by the census.

Culture is a democracy, always remember that.

    • It’s a matter of time. You have to find the tidbits all around the day to put together a few hours, then you can learn something. I’ve booked four more MOOC this year, it’s the triumph of hope against experience. 🙂
