Doing a MOOC or an Online Course is like booking a cab or ordering food online. There are an unprecedented expansion and ease. But the same way we see the limitations and see there are haves and have-nots in this COVID-stricken damaged world, we need to know that many of us do not know good enough about MOOCs as well. Apart from the update to you that even you can host and launch an Online Course, let us share a good platform of free MOOCs- HP EdcastCloud.
Hewlett-Packard is a common name in the household for those who have been using computers, laptops, printers etc. The company has an Online Learning Platform, open to all, which offers Nano-duration MOOCs. MOOC - Massive Open Online Course - the Massive adjective is not about the size but about the access. Going by this understanding, HP has made them public and anyone can do these courses. There is no pre-requisite to stop you. These are primarily up-skilling and skill enhancement short courses. The method of designing and the format are quite easy for the learners.
There are a variety of courses (1 Hour) offered by HP, not a small name, rather a name we all know and have used their products as well. These are upskilling courses and shall introduce you to skill-sets which are asked by employers.
These are Self-Paced Courses and some of them take 40-60 minutes only. The learner sees a story that shares a problem, then a Business Concept to resolve the issue followed by a technology demonstration (simulation) by the participant. A small feedback survey leads to the Certificate.

Your Certificate will be available in 24 Hours and You can present it as the 'stimulator' in your Resume and Interview.
For a better Interview and even for a good Cover Letter/Resume, you need 'ice-breakers' that you plant. The Life-Long Learning motivation should be the driving force in this lockdown. We still have a few months with us to add learning to the profile and to ourselves. This is what we have been doing at EklavyaParv.
Along with hundreds of students, this learning has proved worth it. There is one truth about the role of HP in the EduSoMedia Model of Learning - This platform introduces the learners to MOOCs with such ease that gradually they do more courses, being motivated. It is more of developing the temperament of learning with innovation and an enterprising approach.
