Would you like to take a free MOOC about product design?

Post by Gerardo »

Are you interested in product design? It's a biased definition, but I'd say it's a profession where you can come up with original tools that can help people in there everyday lifes. This is an example: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2016/10/p ... ami-folds/

I'm taking a free MOOC for beginners about product design. The thing is I think I need a study buddy. There are NO tutors, just videos, short readings, and assignments. You don't get feedback regarding your assignments, so you don't really know how well you're doing or how could you improve what you're doing.

If you're interested in product design and would like to take the free MOOC with me, please let me know.

It has seven units, they don't seem to be too complex and you can take one each week. The current course ends on April 30th, but we could wait for the one that starts after that if you prefer.

Let me know :).

I suppose I might be interested, but I would like to know a little bit more about it first. Can you post the link to the site it's on?

How much time do you think it would take for each unit? Additionally, do we get graded or does it go on a transcript?

Anyways, I don't know how good of a study buddy I'd be. But if it's free, it might be worth a try.

I sent you a private message NeverCeaseToCrease, please read it. I did forget to answer your two specific questions, so I'll answer them here: It's hard to say how much time you'll need for each unit, but I'd say a week is time enough. You could probably even take two per week, especially with the first units. About grades, there are grades but they are only the result of some quizes and self-evaluations. Now, completing the course with a passing grade isn't enough to get the certificate. You must have paid $79 USD before that, but if you aren't interested on the certificate, then the course is for free.
