Michael Sandel’s Famous Harvard Course on Justice Now Available as a MOOC: Register Today

Back in 2009, Harvard political philosopher Michael Sandel made his course, Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?, available on the web for free (YouTube – iTunes – Web). Suddenly lifelong learners around the world had access to a popular course enjoyed by more than 14,000 Harvard students over 30 years. Starting on March 12, 2013, Sandel plans to offer Justice as a free course through edX, the provider of MOOCs (or Massive Open Online Courses) created by Harvard and MIT. And here’s one thing you can guarantee: In a single offering, Sandel will bring his course to more students worldwide than he did through his decades teaching at Harvard.

FYI: edX announced other new spring courses. All will be added to our collection of Free Online Certificate Courses & MOOCs from Great Universities. They include:

    Thanks billion Harvard .
    We expect more courses from you asap.

    I propose an EDX DEGREE or Diploma :
    If one gets 40 courses from EDX schools he will be awarded an EDX Diploma .
    We, employers , would hire them immediately .
    EDX Diploma does not need to be accredited . Schools are already accredirted and have the brand name .

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought to write more about this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! All the best!!
