How To Use This Online Learning Website?
The users have to begin with creating an account to enjoy this academic course fest. The website completely justifies its name once you have created an account. It contains course material for almost all the subjects studied around the world. You have to type and choose a subject in the search bar given on the home page. After that the website leads you to a page where all the levels or courses have been mentioned according to their topics. The list of courses is really very huge and a large range of topics have been covered by this online learning website.
Once you have selected a course from the list you can go through all the content in it. An option to save the course in your account is also provided. The course begins with explaining the objective of studying it. It is divided into separate units according to the material for better understanding. Apart from the typed notes that can be read, the course includes videos, articles by different authors and different universities, articles from newspapers, test papers etc. All of these, combined together, help in generating interest as simply reading the notes can be a little boring.
After you have read the course, you can move on to reading the next course. The website also allows you to review the course you have read. You can rate it on a scale of five and add your comments. The best thing about this website is that all the courses and study material are available for free. Users do not have to spend a single penny to get access to such vast course material.
A very helpful website for users and the amount of course material provided is significant. But still, I felt that a couple of things can be looked at critically. First of all, I felt that users should be given the option to download articles and notes. This will enable them to get access to the material even if they are not connected to the internet. Secondly, there is no option to search the subject on the profile page of the user’s account. Every time you have to search for a different subject, you will have to go back to the home page of the website. This can be a little confusing. Apart from that, this online learning website is great.
