I recently got an email from Mom’s Meet about being able to help let my readers know about the Udemy site. If you haven’t heard of Udemy, they are the world’s best online learning marketplace, where 10 million+ students are taking courses in everything from programming to yoga to photography–and much, much more!! Each of their 40,000+ courses is taught by an expert instructor, and every course is available on-demand, so students can learn at their own pace, on their own time, and on any device.
I chose to take the “Brain Science: Improve Your Memory & Boost Your Memory” course, and thought that it had a lot of great information! I had brain surgery about 12 years ago and one of the side effects that I was warned about, due to where the surgery happened, was memory loss. I’m pretty good at remembering things from long ago, and of course songs from the 80’s, but something you told me yesterday, or last week – not so much.
The “Brain Science: Improve Your Memory & Boost Your Memory” course teaches you new ways to remember lists, or important objects, in ways that aren’t normally taught. Using acronyms or acrostics can really help boost your memory. Meeting someone and repeating their name, could help when you meet them again. You’ll most likely remember their face, but not their name, if you don’t.
The class overall had a lot of great tips, and even resources that they allowed you to download to further study the teaching, or try new things to help boost your memory. The one thing that was hard for me, was the voice of the instructor. She was obviously from England, or something like that, so there were times that I didn’t understand things she was saying. I wish there could have been subtitles to help with that. Otherwise, the course was very easy to take, the questions helped to make the teaching sink in even more and the resources will continue to help for years to come.
I would definitely recommend using Udemy for any type of training that you need to be a part of. There are many different topics and class duration to pick from, so saying you don’t have time, won’t cut it. You can always bookmark where you are and come back later to continue, which really helps when you’re working, or a parent – or both!
