Yale vam nudi svoj najpopularniji kurs potpuno besplatno – “The Science of Well Being”

25 mar

People around the world are learning to cope with quarantines in an attempt to stop the further spread of the new coronavirus. As city lockdowns force people to self-quarantine, everyone is searching for ways to keep busy — and Yale University has a solution.

“Psychology and the Good Life,” a course first introduced by Professor Laurie Santos in spring 2018, teaches stressed-out students how to be happier. The university said it quickly became the most popular course in the school’s 317-year history.

Given its success, Yale decided to release the course online with the title, “The Science of Well Being.” It features lectures by Santos “on things people think will make them happy but don’t — and, more importantly, things that do bring lasting life satisfaction.”

Anyone with an internet connection can sign up for the class for free. The course involves a series of challenges “designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits.”

The course is fully online and takes about 20 hours to complete. It includes videos, readings, quizzes and “retirement” activities to build happier habits.

“The Science of Well Being” isn’t the only course that could keep you busy during the coronavirus outbreak. Coursera offers other free courses from the nation’s top schools, including “Greek and Roman Mythology” from the University of Pennsylvania, “Imagining other Earths” from Princeton, and “Child Nutrition and Cooking” from Stanford.
