MOOC and Free Online Teaching from Leading Universities
I am excited today to share my experience of taking my first free online course with EdX. The course is an introduction to biology called "The Secret of Life" by Eric Lander. I have always been a fan of Eric Lander because his lectures are more about understanding biology than just knowing a bunch of facts. I am also very happy to see that many teachers and students are registered to this course and that NSTA (National Science Teacher Association) offers support and free resources for teachers. As a high school science teacher and private tutor I have always felt that the curriculum emphasizes breath instead of depth. I believe that free high quality education is going to have a huge impact for the generation to come. If you haven't taken a course with EdX you can still browse their catalogue here: https://www.edx.org/courses.
