I’m Manoel, the study group coordinator. And I’m also going to be taking the course. Nice to e-meet you all.
The official kick-off was on June 16. But you can still get started. Here’s how.
First, join the forum.
This forum is the heart of the study group. It’s where we’ll discuss what we’re learning, ask questions, support each other, post announcements. etc.
You probably already signed up for the forum. But if not, here’s how:
- Click on Sign Up at the top of this page and fill your information.
- Go to this page and click on Join Study Group at the top.
- Go introduce yourself in this thread.
Second, enroll in the course.
ALOHAF is offered on Coursera, not on Class Central itself. So you’ll need to enroll there. In brief, this involves going to this link, clicking Go to Class, and clicking on Enroll for Free.
In some regions, Coursera is currently offering a free certificate for ALOHAF. We’ve written an article that explains how to enroll in the course and redeem the free certificate.
The free certificate might not be available everywhere. In that case, you can audit the course for free. You can purchase a certificate if you want, but you don’t need to do so to participate in the study group.
Third, start the course.
The official kick-off was on June 16, but there’s still plenty of time to get started.
In Week 1, our goal is to complete the following modules by Tuesday, June 22:
- Module 1: Course intro and happiness measurement
- Module 2: The 1st sin, habit, and exercise
You can find the full study schedule here.
Fourth, join the weekly Zoom sessions.
Every week, we’ll have a live session with Raj to learn about happiness for Dr. Happysmarts himself.
Our first Zoom session will be this Friday, June 18, at 9:00 AM (Central Time). In your local time, this should correspond to 2021-06-18T14:00:00Z.
I’ll email you an invite with the Zoom link. If you haven’t used Zoom before, here are setup instructions.
Fifth, post on the forum.
This forum is truly the heart of the study group. Everyone can create topics and reply to existing ones. So don’t hesitate to put the forum to good use: ask questions, support each other, share your favorite course bits…
And if you haven’t yet, I encourage you to go introduce yourself here.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions, let me know below.
Happy learning everyone!
