  • Larry White United States of America I really enjoyed this course and may take the other one that goes along this course. I have learned a great deal more how our brain learns. The course was challenging and interesting to what early psychologist did o learn how we can train our brain. I am glad to take the course. 2014-04-08 19:04:05
  • Simon Price United Kingdom Challenging by how much it goes into the different areas of the brain, but informative and enjoyable to learn something new. Generally a good course for the first I have completed here. 2014-04-07 19:04:02

  • Jesus Magallon United States of America Course Module: Operant conditioningCourse Topic: Comparison of classical conditioning and operant conditioningComment: Interesting to verify how these methods of conditioning are used to get our community to conform to specific behavior. For example use your credit card and earn points; Be good and you will go to heaven. 2013-05-12 19:05:03
  • Godfrey Mugerwa Uganda Course Module: Operant conditioningCourse Topic: Punishment (including negative effects of punishment) and ways to maximise effectivenessComment: Full of motivational modules. When it comes to punishments the sole aim should not be to gratify the punisher but to effect change.Therefore if our attitude for punishment is wrong then we can never effect positive behavioral change to the undesirable behavior. 2013-05-01 13:05:10
