"Why when I want to learn something do I go online instead of taking a course at my own college?"

What do you like best?

Open2Study provides easily accessible high-quality courses so you can learn what you need to learn.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any real dislikes other than sometimes the courses seem a little distant but I believe the case in many online courses. They do a makeup for this with top-notch content.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very useful content available when and where you need it. I would definitely use them again.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used the two courses I have taken to resolve specific training needs. The first which I completed was a Big Data course and I was trying to brush up on this topic to allow us move forward on a big data project we were beginning. The 2nd which I didn't actually finish may have proved as valuable as I was brushing up on astronomy as we were centerline for the total solar eclipse passing across the United States this past summer. We provided the bandwidth for streaming for several science and news outlets and had many astronomers as guests on our campus. It was very helpful in preparing for this event. Both courses were spot on for me.

"Open2Study - Excellent quality online learning materials"

What do you like best?

Open2Study offers online courses in many different interest fields (not just IT or management related, but from scientific fields e.g. like chemistry).

I have not seen courses, that had been shorter than 4.5 hours, so each course have pretty decent work behind, after each course you can do a quiz, and as each course is divided to 4 modules, after each module there is a bigger assessment, where you need to reach at least 60% to get an online certificate of completion which is just another pro at this site.

Another pro here, that apart from the video recordings, you can find the transcript of the audio attached to the video, this is often very-very useful, if you want to make quick notes, or you want to read further in a topic and you want to be super sure about you spelled e.g. a name or method correct.

A small unique gamification is also part of this site, where you can collect badges, funny and motivating at the same time.

What do you dislike?

Most of the courses has a scheduled rhythm, at least seeing when you can perform the assessments, which occasionally either pressing or slowing you down. This is not the case with the self-paced courses of course.

I have not found a unique URL generated to your certificate, that you could link to your LinkedIn profile - this could be useful for many users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Open2Study offers couple of free courses, try them, to have a feeling about the quality. The whole concepts behind is nice, and very easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a site provides online courses (free, paid, with certificates, and some are accredited) - obviously it helps to keep yourself trained and give you the necessary start in a topic. Courses are covering a good coverage of the targeted topics, so even if you are familiar with the topic itself, you still can get many valuable hints, that you can build in your daily work or in your hobby - to me this is the most essential part, to get fresh ideas, or pick up an old idea that I ignored for a while.
