I worked on three courses tonight.
First, I completed some coursework in Google Search with Dan Russell, a senior research scientist at Google.
Then I began two new Coursera classes: A History of the World Since 1300 taught by Jerry Adelman of Princeton, and Greek and Roman Mythology by Peter Struck of Penn.
The courses are free. And incredibly convenient. I can watch the video lectures (in small chunks) in bed, and do the assignments and assessments from just about anywhere at anytime that works for me.
I can even compress the video lectures by running the video at increased speed.
Quality education for free for all. On demand. Remarkable.
