Wish this course was around when I was an undergraduate

this online course is very pleasurable and interesting.

It will help me in my life and my job by changing the way i think about learning and brain.

Content was well presented. The reading of the teleprompter was sometimes awkward and distracting, but ended up being an exercise in focus in itself. I feel like there could have been more description or examples of actually consciously creating a "chunk", as opposed to the more theoretical description of what it is and how it works... something to research, I suppose. Thanks much!

A fantastic course, full of creative and useful ideas. It was just perfect from the simple English language used, excellent illustrations to the highly qualified lecturers. All in all, a very good course to recommend. Thank you for the efforts to make this course freely accessible to everybody. Thank you for sharing personal experiences. Thank you for adding that much of info to my knowledge bank. I hope meet you soon on another useful course.
