  9. 9. MY COURSE OF INTEREST Language (Home language), prepared and unprepared speech. I get excited when it comes to having your voice being heard in public that is why I enrolled in the MOOC of courser called; ‘Introduction to public speaking’. I also as a future teacher is hoping to gain some knowledge on how to master public speaking speech thus this is done a lot in the teaching filed. The three aspects that I like for me and the others to perfect is the voice tone, confidence and posture. I also want to learn how has language influence our way of living as humans, to make my learners aware and understand the whole process of speaking.
  10. 10. WHAT HAVE I LEARNED FROM MOOC? • I have gained knowledge that MOOC promotes the everything that has been done and remixes the information or resources. • MOOCs reveals the intelligence in one’s creativity. • The model is open for everyone to register and get connected with the new technology of learning. • A student can not fuss over a class been missed because MOOC it does not run by time. • MOOC involvement brings flexibility in one being able to interact with public services and be able to sort their own stuff online without consulting anyone face to face. • One can also be able to make money out of MOOC, by helping online for instance online tutoring, be able to get a learnership or sponsor through online.
