Coursera.

I am getting a lot of random stuff done around the house, now that I have lectures to avoid. Kind of awesome, since those random things are also things I normally avoid doing.

And even better, the lectures are broken up into segments of about 10-15 minutes, so it's easy to compromise: one segment of lecture, one or two small tasks. During which I get to ponder the lecture, or just enjoy that nice feeling of one's neurons firing.

(Thinking is hot).

I guess this is the perfect balance.

The weird thing is, both the random little tasks, and the learning, are generally things I really enjoy doing so I don't know I procrastinate at all. Nonetheless, I do. And thus I need some of both to find the means to not procrastinate.

If you would like to change up the lectures to avoid, check out EdX (they even have Harvard courses - ladeda). Very user friendly courses though. I'm trying my first - Thinking For Everyday Life (or something like that). Mind you, that program is being offered by University of Queensland, Australia ... so, not quite Harvard. But still.

Doh! Pulling foot from mouth - pop!

Absolutely not. One of the best MOOCs I've taken so far was with the University of Melbourne.

My comment was only meant for those with a need for Ivy League names. My bad.
