In this post I will summarise [ramble] my next steps into the world of learning via a MOOC (massive online open course to you) from Harvard.
First of all, I am so typical. I came onto edX in a view to being excited, interested and wrapped up in the idea of going back to do computer science.

- Motivation is key to [my] learning
- Time on task is crucial
- Procrastination is easy
