I've completed my fourth MOOC this year:'England in the time of King Richard III'

Although I scored low on this week's quiz, I took the last test early and the 100% pulled the entire course grade up to 84%, meaning two weeks that scored 100% and another week at 93% as to whether I learned the material or comprehended enough of the class lectures. It was a British History course from The University of Liecester based on their finding the skeleton of Richard III, combining Medieval Studies with Archeological News- not a bad concept for a course description. It was my fourth completed MOOC, earlier this month I finished a British Literature course from the University of Sheffield similarly centered around the "speciality", which is the literature written in Derbyshire from Ben Johnson to Oscar Wilde, including the Mysteries of Udolpho, Great Expectations and Pride and Prejudice. The course on Warhol from The University of Edinburgh had nothing to do with Scotland, I'll admit, but it was enjoyable. So my completed massive open online courses are now: University of Copenhagen: Scandinavian Film and Television 87.9% University of Edinburgh: Warhol 85% University of Sheffield: British Literature the Country House 93% University of Leicester: Richard III (History/Archeology) 84% -------- I am waiting for more Future Learn and more Coursera .
