I am an Electronics Engineering student. One of my professors has suggested us to try online courses through edX. Along with my other classmates, we tried MITx’s 6.002x Circuits and Electronics as our introductory class to online courses, since we thought we have already learned a lot about this subject. Much to our surprise is how engaging the approach was. We collectively answered quizzes, and have everyone passed the course. But more importantly, we were able to learn more than what we’ve already knew.
A very great lesson our professor, Dr. Celso Co, taught us is that learning should not be confined along the walls of the classroom, or should not be followed through the curriculum of your bachelor’s degree, but rather go beyond to be able to see how big education can be. Right now, me and my classmates, and even our professor, still take courses in the edX.
I am currently taking ColWri2.1x (College Writing 2x) of BerkeleyX to develop my technical writing skills, and looking forward to Think101x (The Science of Everyday Thinking) of UQx and UT.9.01x (Effective Thinking Through Mathematics) of UTAustinX.
I am also looking forward in discovering other great courses and to how edX can help me shape my future, not just as a student, or probably a professional, but also an educator.
