Coursera MOOC

If you haven’t heard of MOOC yet it means Massive Open Online Course. I’ve looked at several of the availale options: Udacity, Coursera, EdX and Khan Academy and I have to say that Coursera is the best. The others are heavily weighted with tech courses but have next to nothing in the humanities which is where Coursera shines. I just finished a course on Greek and Roman mythology taught by Peter Struck of the University of Pennsylvania. It was interesting and I read a number of works that I should have read years ago. I would personally recommend that all Bible college students take an introductory course in Greek and Roman mythology such as this in order to round out their understanding of the religious milieu of New Testament times.

Today begins a course on entitled, Think Again: How to Reason and Argue taught by Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Ram Neta or Duke University. It looks interesting so get over there and sign up already.

  1. You can see which MOOC from one provider = an MOOC from another at:

    Easy to look up what is available from different universities and providers in one spot.
