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.
