online course: Nutrition for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

  • February 24, 2014 · 9:00 PM

I am taking some nutrition courses online from verified universities from around the world. The next course I am starting is on Feb 24th. 

ITS FREE! You can pay $69USD to get a verified certificate in the course if you choose.

I would like some study buddies for this course. You need about 4-6 hours a week but the cool thing is you can stream the videos on your iphone, ipad or computer. What I have been doing is listening while I am cooking, cleaning the house or walking to and from my car. I wouldn't say you need 4-6 hours of sit down dedicated time IF you have a background and understanding already. If you are bran new to the subject you might want to sit down and take lots of notes. 

Interested?

    One more week to go - and the course is done. Very glad I was able to keep up with it. The knowledge and study discipline was worth the endeavor. Another new course starting April 7 ---The New Nordic Diet - from Gastronomy to Health --https://www.coursera.org/course/newnordicdiet -- Looks interesting and I have signed up for it.

    So far this course has been really good. This week will be a study on Cancer and nutrition. How many are still with the course? Any study group formed?

      sign up at any time you like. i signed up weeks in advance. the description of this meetup is for study buddies, and to share free learning with you, so isn't really a set time. its just mandatory to set one on meetup.com

    I took a class with Coursera and I recommend it. Well organized and the online tools are well done. I like their philosophy that education should be free. As for the recommended hours of study, I think they were quite accurate. Of course, it depends on how serious you are and how much interest you have on the subject. Have fun! No cheating! :P
