I can see that people are interested in informal education and that is for a praise. MOOC is expanding heavily from 2012, and I'm really happy for that.
But also, I can see that too many people are finishing let's say 60- 100 courses per year.
Don't get me wrong, but I can see a trend that people are finishing courses just for show off. Quantitative isn't a great thing, I have finished 60+ courses in a period of 4 years, most of them in previous 2 years.
It's ok to show interest in some filed, and to expand your knowledge, but to finish many courses in short time span isn't cool by me.
I want you to hear your opinion on this topic.
Be honest, do you enroll on course for yourself or others?
Some courses I did enroll to get noticed, or to get a possible better position for a job. But 80% courses I have enrolled for myself, and to expand my knowledge. State of accomplishment was only dot on i.
