Michael Sandel’s Famous Harvard Course on Justice Launches as a MOOC on Tuesday

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 this Tuesday, 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. You can enroll and reserve your free seat here. Students who receive a passing grade in the course can earn a certificate of mastery, which will bear the name HarvardX.

Justice has been added to our every growing list of MOOCs from Great Universities.
