On-line Courses in 2014

So far this year, I have completed the following courses on Coursera and edX:

  • Buddhism & Modern Psychology by Robert Wright (Princeton University)
  • A Beginner's Guide to Irrationality by Dan Ariely (Duke University)
  • Think 101x: The Science of Everyday Thinking (University of Queensland)
  • Practical Ethics by Peter Singer (Princeton University)
  • Moralities of Everyday Life by Paul Bloom (Yale University)

Due to time constraints I didn't complete any of the coursework requirements or required readings, although I do appreciate how valuable these activities are.

To make my efforts worthwhile, I really should spend some time consolidating this knowledge. The problem is that around every course lies another interesting course - bookmarked courses for future study include:
  • Unethical Decision Making in Organizations (University of Lausanne)
  • Søren Kierkegaard - Subjectivity, Irony and the Crisis of Modernity (University of Copenhagen)
  • Buddhist Meditation and the Modern World (University of Virginia)
