The modules/chapters/sections/whatever you want to call them are short. 15 – 20 minutes each. This is shorter than I expected but it means they are pretty quick and easy to go through. Each module is split into a few sections with a blog post and maybe an activity or something to go with it. Not all of them have a video. I’m really more interested in listening to Deepak espouse wisdom like an Indian Yoda with nuggets like “you are in a prison with no bars…this prison is your conditioning” than reading the extra stuff, but I get it. I create online training courses, so I understand the value of using different media to help emphasize the point. So far, I’m interested, but there’s really like 4 minutes of Deepak footage total.
The videos themselves are very well produced. High-def, looks like a Vimeo player. From a technical standpoint, there were no glitches — I never had to wait for the videos to buffer, which I often have to do with high-def videos that aren’t YouTube (including Vimeo) — if they’re self-hosting these videos, they’ve got an awfully nice CDN delivering the content.
I should point out that this course is co-sponsored by grandparents.com. I should further point out that I am not a grandparent. I think that the general ideas are probably applicable to anyone, but the specifics may be outside my demographic — especially when we start talking about biological age vs. chronological age. This lesson is all about changing your perception of what aging means, which, I dunno…I’m 35. Sometimes I feel old, but that’s just relative to where I’ve been. In general, I’m not really feeling over-the-hill. That doesn’t kick in until you’re 40, right?
