medium_8414406177My colleague Tamsyn Smith (@TamsynMSmith) has just compiled a useful summary of MOOCs that might help students develop their study skills. This is a summary of courses that have been available so far; some may not be currently live or have future versions scheduled, so do use with caution if referring students to them. Do you know of any others?
