vonc + course   71

Epistemology, where we’ll consider what our knowledge of the world and ourselves consists in, and how we come to have it;
Philosophy of science, where we’ll investigate foundational conceptual issues in scientific research and practice;
Philosophy of Mind, where we’ll ask questions about what it means for something to have a mind, and how minds should be understood and explained;
Moral Philosophy, where we’ll attempt to understand the nature of our moral judgements and reactions – whether they aim at some objective moral truth, or are mere personal or cultural preferences, and;
Metaphysics, where we’ll think through some fundamental conceptual questions about the nature of reality.

Certificates of Completion Controversy » Selenium Simplified
Udemy have started offering Certificates of Completion.

But not for my courses. I opted out.


Well, I have some issues with the notion of certification which I blogged about a long time ago.

But these are certificates of completion, not a certification!

True. But…

I don’t agree with the wording
I don’t agree with the definition of completed
I don’t agree with the use of the word ‘successfully’
I don’t like a facsimile of my signature being used without my permission
I think it incentivises the wrong behaviour
I will not devalue the course

Course Builder is our experimental first step in the world of online education. It packages the software and technology we used to build our Power Searching with Google online course. We hope you will use it to create your own online courses, whether they're for 10 students or 100,000 students. You might want to create anything from an entire high school or university offering to a short how-to course on your favorite topic.

Course Builder contains software and instructions for presenting your course material, which can include lessons, student activities, and assessments. It also contains instructions for using other Google products to create a course community and to evaluate the effectiveness of your course. To use Course Builder, you should have some technical skills at the level of a web master. In particular, you should have some familiarity with HTML and JavaScript.
