Yale University is launching its next generation of free online courses this month, with four new courses debuting in the next six weeks. Registration is open now for all courses at http://www.coursera.org/yale.In keeping with my New Year's resolutions, I will sign up for one course. No more than one, though. In keeping with another resolution, I will finish what I start.
Four of Yale’s most distinguished scholars are inaugurating the program. The course titles, faculty members, and dates of the first online classes are:
January 16 – “Roman Architecture,” with Diana E. E. Kleiner, Dunham Professor of History of Art and Classics
January 20 - "Moralities of Everyday Life," with Paul Bloom, Brooks and Suzanne Ragen Professor of Psychology & Cognitive Science
January 27 - “Constitutional Law,” with Akil Amar ’80, ’84 JD, Sterling Professor of Law & Political Science
