260 MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) Getting Started in January

Yes­ter­day, Josh Jones revis­it­ed Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe’s ambi­tious list of New Year’s Res­o­lu­tions from 1955. Turn­ing back the clock, we find Mar­i­lyn, already a big movie star, set­ting a lot of edu­ca­tion­al goals:

  • go to class – my own always – with­out fail
  • work when­ev­er pos­si­ble – on class assign­ments
  • start attend­ing Clur­man lec­tures – also Lee Strassberg’s direc­tors lec­tures at the­ater wing
  • if pos­si­ble – take at least one class at uni­ver­si­ty – in lit­er­a­ture –

Hope­ful­ly class­es — lots of them — fig­ure into your 2015 plans. And if we’ve got you pegged right, you’ll want to spend time perus­ing our com­pre­hen­sive list of MOOCs (Mas­sive Open Online Cours­es), which we curat­ed this month with the gen­er­ous help of ClassCentral.com. 260 MOOCs will be get­ting under­way in Jan­u­ary alone. While we encour­age you to find the cours­es that par­tic­u­lar­ly appeal to you, we’ve list­ed a few intrigu­ing ones below. You can also scan Class­Cen­tral’s list of the 10 Most Pop­u­lar MOOCs in Jan­u­ary 2015 for a few ideas.
