Cheery Friday Greetings from Learning How to Learn Dec 18, 2015
5th January 2017
Cheery Holiday greetings to our Learning How to Learners!
It’s a wonderful holiday season here as we approach the end of 2015! We’ve had a great time learning together with you as the year has rolled by. One thing we’re beginning to appreciate all the more is that learning shares a surprising amount with exercise. Sometimes a little nudging inspiration helps keep you going (hence our weekly emails!). Speaking of both exercise and learning, here’s a terrific article in the New York Times about how exercise keeps your brain young.
Learning How to Learn’s Best Book of 2015
It’s time to share with you our recommendation for the very best book of 2015. It’s the outstanding Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari. Sweeping, thoughtful insights don’t come much better than this book, which has changed how we think about issues we’ve long thought important. Thank you to Learning How to Learner Marinda Nel for the recommendation—we learn so much from our learners!
Learning How to Learn makes #1—three times!
Last week we observed that Learning How to Learn was ranked the #1 most popular free online course for professionals by Business Insider. This week we’ve discovered that Learning How to Learn is now not only Coursera’s #1 course, we’re also listed as the #1 Most Popular MOOC of All Time by “Online Course Report.” Thank you for your inspiration, and for spreading the word about learning!
Happy learning, always!
Barb, Terry, and the entire Learning How to Learn team
