  10. 10. Fields of interest…  As a future teacher of ENGLISH my interests it to teach online and I like to pursue Shakespearean literature. I would like to share this topic with other teachers and students because it seems that learners experience problems with these topics and since Moocs are free I think most leaners will comment and share their opinions online rather than in class.  Moocs will help me as a future teacher to approach and support students who struggling with English literature because I can access Moocs at anytime at anywhere.
