This summer, Brown University reached out to see if we might work together. The University had recently been considering putting three courses online, for free, as part of Coursera.org and the wild and rollicking new world of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
We agreed, the brave new world of online courses was inspiring and alive, but the quality of the other universities video might leave a little to be desired. We did a secret handshake to start with making introductory ‘promo’ videos together – something different, unburdened by the past – and hit the ground running toward the wild west of MOOCs. This is one of them.
