MOOC: The Course to Change the World

Bet the world hasn’t changed yet and the secrets are still being shrouded. Maybe, this will unleash everything. This massive open online course (MOOC) by Wesleyan University was created during Social Good Summit held at the 92nd Street Y in New York.

Launching in January 20th, 2014, the six-week MOOC is now open for enrollment on the Coursera website. Emphasis will be  on issues concerning climate change, energy use, health care, poverty, philanthropy, role of women, gender issues and activism.

Micheal Roth, president of Wesleyan University, said: “My university and the online class foster a liberal education that encourages scholarship beyond campus. By liberal education, I mean an education that leads you to ask more questions and results in life-long learning.” He also said  education should do four things: liberate, animate, cooperate and instigate.

The course has a workload of 3-5 hours a week and each class will be guided by Roth with a video from the Social Good Summit.

    • Nope, I haven’t worked there, but I believe I can help you with a little bit of research if you could tell what exactly your problem is.

      It’s nothing like schematic courses as it involves not only your experience in your field but also a perfect-working-synchronization with your co-instructors that is – designer, videographer, technologist, etc.
