The capstone consists of a research project that you will perform in collaboration with fellow students. You will formulate a research hypothesis and design and collect data or work with a secondary data set provided by one of our external partners (TBA). You will document and analyze the data and write a research report. Depending on the topic you choose, the project may involve developing your own questionnaire and collecting your own data or contributing to a research project running at the University of Amsterdam or one of our external partners.Online learning plays a key role in lifelong learning. In fact, a recent report by the United States Department of Education found that "the courses that include online education (either completely virtual or blended learning) produce, on average, much stronger learning outcomes for students courses They are conducted exclusively in person. Based on an approach developed by educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom, the mastery learning helps students to fully understand a subject before moving on to a more advanced. In Coursera, usually we give an answer immediately to the concepts that the student does not understand feedback. In many cases, we offer random versions of assessments for the student to return to school and retrying until mastered the concept.
