FYI. 1,000+ MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are getting underway this month, giving you the chance to take free courses from top flight universities. With the help of Class Central, we've pulled together a complete list of June MOOCS. And below we've highlighted several courses that caught our eye. The trailer above comes from Søren Kierkegaard - Subjectivity, Irony and the Crisis of Modernity, a course created by the University of Copenhagen.
