Default Re: How do you typically learn the material?

Having taken a few MOOCs now, I find that taking notes as I watch the videos helps me to think through the material for myself. I also have index cards to keep the main points accessible for use after the course (or for revision prior to the exam!).

I love being able to pause the videos so I can catch up, or so I can try to understand the material better.

BTW I find the method in the homework of generating data to be particularly useful for this course as it gives you an insight into the real-world generation of data for a target function subject to a probability distribution.
