Mindshift is designed to help boost your career and life in today’s fast-paced learning environment. Whatever your age or stage, Mindshift teaches you essentials such as how to get the most out of online learning and MOOCs, how to seek out and work with mentors, the secrets to avoiding career ruts (and catastrophes) and general ruts in life, and insights such as the value of selective ignorance over general competence. We’ll provide practical insights from science about how to learn and change effectively even in maturity, and we’ll build on what you already know to take your life’s learning in fantastic new directions. This course is designed to show you how to look at what you’re learning, and your place in what’s unfolding in the society around you, so you can be what you want to be, given the real world constraints that life puts on us all. You’ll see that by using certain mental tools and insights, you can learn and do more—far more—than you might have ever dreamed! This course can be taken independent of, concurrent with, or subsequent to, its companion course, Learning How to Learn. (Mindshift is more career focused, and Learning How to Learn is more learning focused.)...




I enjoyed this MOOC. It is very well-done and clearly covers the topics of mindshifting along with career advancement. Also--good illustrations and visuals/sounds which assist in the learning process.



Great course! This is a lot more general than Learning about Learning but is also useful nonetheless. I like the focus on keeping positive and being confident in your potential despite our weaknesses.

Enjoyed the interesting course as it is in the right speed, with the right bite size that I can easily complete in between the time I have in a week. It is easy to understand as both speak clearly and not rush through like some of the courses I have taken before. Well done and hope to see more courses coming after this!

The course is really helpful and applicable to real life. Also I'd like to give a big praise to Professor Oakley. I was deeply impressed by her enthusiasm, professionalism, and confidence in what she teaches. Also, I appreciated she used very easy English for learners like me whose mother tongue is not English. Thank you.

Recently unemployed and out of school for a long time, I decided to take Mindshift as a stepping stone to future on-line learning. The information provided is invaluable. it really boosted my self-confidence and egged me on a new learning adventure which may lead to a possible career shift. I definitely recommend it.

This course have given me a lot of insights about the benefits of being a slow learner, having a bad memory, ways to fight Procrastination, the science behind mind-shifting and ways to climb up the learning ladder in a more efficient manner with the knowledge of hurdles which will eventually come on the way to success.

Mindshift is a great course. The great benefit is that complex knowledge on brain and learning is outstandingly explained in a way that is simple and intelligible. It helped me a lot to find out more about and foster my own learning. The course is like a greenhouse where dialogue and development are cultivated so w

It is the best MOOC I ever have taken. I learned a lot from Barbara Oakley. I really appreciate her great and excellent gift she gave us. I think is a very important course for everybody and it should be taught from schools. In a very concise way the course gives all the tools you need to improve our learning process.

Mindshift MOOC is la ife-changer. It was able to open my eyes to see that what I saw as potentially bad, be it styles of learning to simple attitudes or behaviors can actually be reversed and in the end be opportunities for bringing about something good not just in my learning or understanding but general ly in life.



An excellent course to motivate you to keep learning and skilling up. It talks about various important ideas like understanding your strengths as weaknesses and using your apparent weaknesses as strengths. It talks about techniques to cope with anxiety and much more and it does all this in a creative and fun manner.

Anyone who is diving into online learning or MOOCs should take this course first. It's well structured - enough content without being overwhelming and very relevant to self-guided learning. I started using the lessons from Mindshift as I was taking the course and it helped me better learn and retain the information.

創建者 Juan P T


I learned a lot on this MOOC even if I have not yet read the book. The concepts were explained without getting bored and very interactive as well. Both Barbara and Terry did well in introducing this course to anyone who wants to take a second look on how they learning so far, and have appreciated them. Keep it up.

創建者 Iván E A


This course was a great follow up for "Learning how to Learn". Barbara Oakley is a great instructor. This course gives you valuable insights on how we should broaden our passions, rather than blindly follow them. Also, how career setbacks can mean new opportunities and how to control our emotions by labeling them.

Excellent course! The material and the presentation of the material was very captivating, and made the learning easy and fast. This was one of the courses I couldn't wait to get back to! Thank you for putting together a very helpful course for people who want to learn, but were burnt out and discouraged like me.

創建者 Ijeoma


Mindshift was in the name...the topics discussed and lessons illustrated did exactly that...they shifted my mind. What I also found helpful were the bonus videos that provided memory tips. I am glad my sister recommended the class to me and I would recommend it to others. I'll definitely apply for other courses.

I took this and the companion Learning How to Learn as my first MOOCs. The clear images, effective visuals, and concise text with interesting learning features were just the right balance to get me started with on-line learning. Great job presenting useful and simple tools and advice to improve my own learning.

創建者 Meenal S D


Mind-shift is an excellent life learning message for everyone, at any age, any stage, any time, from any profession. The mental tricks including reframing are very useful. Superb course content, interesting videos and effective execution in her ever- charming style by Barbara and Terry.

Thank you from my heart.

Excellent summary about learning throughout one's lifecourse. I personally was already familiar with most of the concepts presented, but enjoyed the course very much nonetheless. The instructors are generally engaging and do a commendable job of bringing the latest research together in an easy-to-digest format.

This course was so amazing that I found time to complete it in one week. I look forward to buying the book and looking into further reading. A complete course that motivates you and really gets you hooked on learning more. I've found many ways to learn in a way that is more useful to me, so I am very grateful.

We have to look inside in an ever changing world and understand thar learning for life is the new rule of growing up into our lives.

囿于我当下的英文写作能力,我在这次评价中选择使用中文。在本课程中,Dr. Barbara Oakley 和 Dr. Terrence Sejnowski 综合了各个学科领域的知识,将“思维转变”的可行性、重要性与方法通过生动有趣的语言阐述出来。每一节课程,虽然短小精悍,但是要想学习透彻是需要投入很多的时间的,例如:“如何克服拖延症?”与“How to get motivated”相关的知识点。通过本课程的学习,我掌握了一系列思维转变的方法以及明确职业发展的规划,相信通过不断的识记与练习知识要点,我能够顺畅的掌握“Mindshift”。同时,我也要感谢本次授课的两位老师,感谢他们对于知识的无私分享和精妙的课程设计。
