MOOCs for you!

I present below a few MOOCs that might interest you. If you read my recent interview to Rodolfo Maslias about the skills of the terminologist, these knowledge fields were mentioned. So I went to look at some of the main MOOC places to find free courses that we can take. Remember, you can choose to take the course for free with no certificate but also you can make a small payment to get the certificate. I usually like to take the first week and see how I feel about it before deciding if it’s worth getting the certificate or not. Let me know if you find other MOOCs that might be of interest to other readers. Some courses have already started, but you can still catch up! If it gets too advanced, at least the student can learn the basics and have a general idea of its contents.
