About Online Learning Success

I’m Pat Bowden and I have completed more than 80 online MOOCs since late 2012.

I set up Online Learning Success to help others succeed at learning via the internet. You may be studying online as part of a formal university course, or through your workplace. The techniques provided here are not just for MOOC students, they can help you too.

While my major interest is in the natural world, many other topics are also available as MOOCs. I have mostly done science and writing courses such as “The Science of the Solar System” and “Start Writing Fiction”, with a sprinkling of other subjects such as history and business. One of my earliest MOOCs was “Think Again: How to Reason and Argue”, much to my husband’s amusement. This course has since been split up into four shorter courses.

I really appreciate being able to learn about many different things in my own home. My favourite course is “Learning How to Learn” which gives learners insight into memory and how the brain works as well as offering plenty of tips for success. This course is also the most popular MOOC in the world, with nearly two million people signed up since it was launched in 2014.
