I am enjoying the courses and subject matter provided in Australian Online Courses. There are so many great courses to do I want to enrol in so many of them. I like the fact that you can design your own pathway and career development and not have to be tied to a 4 year degree that costs thousands of dollars. I believe that micro-learning and short courses is the way of the future and Universities are going to have to come on board or go broke. Look forward to my next course.
