I have a large number of goals this year. They’re possibly spiraling out of control. And there are a couple that I don’t know how to achieve yet. One of those goals was to increase my knowledge around the oil and gas industry. I’d had a look around at the time of setting my goals and nothing had turned up of interest on the MOOC sites I’d checked. Living in Perth I figured there would be some good summary classes that I might be able to pay for at a local university but those seemed more targeted at specific course areas. I left the goal and moved on.
So when an email “New Stanford Online Learning Opportunities!” lobbed into my account I was pleasantly surprised to see a course on Reservoir Geomechanics.
