Walter Lewin, the Original Star of Open Education, Returns with a Brand New Physics MOOC

It seems like not a week goes by without The New York Times writing a gushing profile about Coursera. It’s hard to believe, but back during another day, there was another darling of the open education movement. And his name was Walter Lewin. In a 2007 profile, the same New York Times called him “an international Internet guru” and highlighted his wildly popular physics courses recorded at MIT. Those courses — find them in our collection of Free Online Physics Courses, part of our collection of 825 Free Online Courses – were widely distributed through YouTube and iTunes. Now the MOOCs have come along, and Lewin isn’t letting himself get swept to the side. On February 18, Lewin and his MIT colleagues will launch a new course on edX called Electricity and Magnetism. Drawing on Lewin’s famous lecture series, Electricity and Magnetism will run 17 weeks, requiring students to put in about 9-12 hours per week. You can reserve your free seat in the course today and watch Lewin do what he does best.

If physics isn’t your thing, you can find other MOOCs getting started later this month, or in February.
