    The Rise of MOOC

    The Rise of MOOC

    The ability to learn, anywhere, on multiple devices and at your own pace, isn't that the dream? Well for me anyway! I've been a firm supporter of continuing education ever since I first set foot on a university campus. It didn't stop there though—I believe people who want to invest in themselves, should have options and flexibility. Whether you want to learn the latest in Adobe Creative Suite, or study Forensic Accounting because hey, why not! MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses are helping us get there.

    Poetry: Noun. A Piece Containing an Absurd Amount of Made-Up Symbolism and Overdramatic Back Story

    Poetry: Noun. A Piece Containing an Absurd Amount of Made-Up Symbolism and Overdramatic Back Story

    Every student has been involuntarily subjected to poetry in the pursuit of education. And I am willing to bet that we have all fallen victim to the English teacher/professor who sees a symbolic meaning in every third word or the comma placement. As a person who genuinely enjoys poetry, I will admit that even I can be put off by the in-depth analysis that poetry is often associated with. However, I do believe that the problem lies more in the way that poetry is taught to students instead of the divination of details in the poems themselves. (Yes, it is difficult to take it seriously when someone is telling you that the period in the poem signifies a deeper ending.) My first point is that poetry can be enjoyable, regardless of background or explicit attention to every detail. How can this be?

    What to Consider when Picking Your University Course

    What to Consider when Picking Your University Course

    Right off the bat, I want to say that this post is written based on my experiences at a university in England. While education can work differently depending on the university and where in the world it is, these points should be broad enough that you can hopefully apply them to your situation in some way, shape, or form. This also isn't the end-all or be-all of lists, but these are certain things that helped me in making my own decisions when it came to what degree I wanted to get.
