johnb Posted November 20, 2012 Share Posted November 20, 2012 MOOC's (Massive Open Online Courses) appear to be all the rage in higher education circles these days. There have been several articles lately about this trend, including this one in today's NYT. Anybody with internet access can sign up for these things, and some of them even offer actual credit. The interesting thing is that even courses of interest to the food-obsessed have found their way into the curricula; here is Coursera's listing of food and nutrition topics (Coursera does not yet offer college credit but probably will eventually). I have signed up for "The Science of Gastronomy" and it takes willpower not to sign up for more (I'm also signed up for a course on irrational thinking). Maybe if there's some interest we could get up a Rockwell mutual support group. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
