Do you love art? Would you like to learn all about your favourite artist, painting, art movement but your time is limitted? The MOOCs are here for you! But what a MOOC is? Massive Open Online Course is the new, easy way of learning. In addition to traditional course materials such as filmed lectures, readings, and problem sets, many MOOCs provide interactive user forums to support community interactions among students, professors, and teaching assistants. MOOCs are a recent and widely researched development in distance education.  

More and more top Universities and Museums globaly brovide for free their courses, available for the public. All you need to do is register to the ones that suits you the most.

  • Coursera provides courses from different Universities and Art Institutes. Let's see some of them:
  • Modern Art and Ideas by the MoMA
  • In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Painting by the MoMA
  • The Modern and the Postmodern by the Wesleyan University
  • Roman Art and Archaeology by the University of Arizona
  • Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom.
  • Renaissance & Reformation in Europe
  • Baroque to Neoclassical art in Europe
  • Art in 19th centruy Europe
  • Expressionism to Pop Art
 

This is only a small introduction to the limitless options on the web for online learning.

My experience is mostly with Coursera since I wanted to participate in MoMA's courses that are dedicated mostly to modern art, focusing on crussial art themes. The MoMA, has created a great team of curators and teachers that are always helpful, answering questions fast and making learning easy.

Khan Academy, on the other hand, has a complete art history course but I wouldn't recommend it to someone with limited time.

Don't waste any more time, find the perfect much for you and begin your journey in the art's history world today!
