    Pace yourself.
    If you need a break - take it. You can always jump back in.
    From Sylvia Moessinger's Don't Be a MOOC Dropout.
    Follow your interests, but look beyond the major providers.
    Be realistic about the time you have.
    Get prepared by browsing the course page before it starts.
    Take it easy. Don't feel obligated to follow all the discussion in the first days.
    Don't be shy. There's more value in collaboration than in completion.
    Hang on. With no teacher checking on you, you need to remind yourself of your own motivation.
    Continue networking. A lot of the value of the course comes afterward.
