Recommended Posts

Assalam u Alaykum 

We are willing to sponsor any advanced member with a good track record to complete the following short online course. It is beneficial for personal development (career wise such short courses are impressive on your CV regardless of your background) as well as to the Shiachat Community. 

  • Introduction to Clinical Psychology - From University of Queensland (Australia). Verified Certificate for $99 [We will cover this cost]
  • 7 weeks course - 1-2 hours per week.
  • Self-Paced
  • Advanced members of all race and religions (or no religion) are welcome. In fact, we will allocate a separate quota for our minorities if we have to .....
  • Members will have both options: to either keep their learning private & confidential or to reveal their account identity to 1) encourage others for future courses and 2) to be acknowledged as 'semi-specialists' of the relevant subject

What you'll learn

  •  Common psychological disorders including anxiety, mood disorders and Schizophrenia

I am very much interested in both signing up for this course (always had an interest in psychology) and to help raise funds. 

Good! I don't care how busy you are in your corporate law mumbo jumbo ..... Since you have always been interested in psychology, I am going to make sure that you complete this course... :grin:

This is a great idea, I have studied much of this already but am currently occupied with further studies anyway (in this same area).

This would be brilliant for anyone who is interested.

Thank you brother Abbas, may Allah (s.w.t) reward you for your efforts! :)

Did anyone sign up for this course? :) 

Nothing official so far. My backup is @Pearl178 although I don't want to burden her with more work... 

@Sindbad05 how about you? You seemed liked you were interested?

There are so many other courses at edx. If a member is interested in something else, we can, of course, change the course..... I picked this one because it is generally good for both personal development and the forum.

@Abbas. edX had a comparative religions sequence of courses that might interest some users. I am interested in that series, but I didn't have time when it was last offered and it's not self-paced if I remember correctly. 

Most of the MOOCs I'm interested in have no relevance to the forum; astrobiology and astronomy and rocket science and an occasional environmental science or paleontology course. (Also, lately I use mostly Coursera, which is much less rigorous, more relaxed.) 

I really like Coursera for general knowledge, but I don't recommend it for certification unless it really steps up it's game. The certificates aren't going to mean much if they are too easy.

Doesn't have to be forum related. So let me know if you find something in there that interests you and is self-paced.... 

Reminder to members: No one has to publicly advise that they are interested. You can contact me via pm. Or if you don't even want me to know about it, send an email to Ali with a link to this post and a subject "Private & Confidential". @Ali

The course says 'FREE Add a Verified Certificate for $99' and thank you to Admins for saying they would pay for this!

What if someone does not want to get the certificate? Can they take the course informally without getting credit?

Yes. But note that these certificates come from world class universities including Harvard. There are professional certificates too, being offered by Microsoft.
