But this Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on Comic Books and Graphic Novels popped up one day last week in my Facebook news feed, and I couldn't resist. I've been hearing about Coursera for quite a while now, about how it's going to revolutionize learning and colleges and will make it so that, in the near future, employers will look down on you if you were suckered into paying for a traditional college degree and will instead look to see which MOOC classes you have certificates for (which you do have to pay $50 for, but still, that's much more reasonable).
So I'll be taking University of Colorado Boulder Proffesor William Kuskin's MOOC on Comic Books and Graphic Novels, starting tomorrow for the next 7 weeks. I've skimmed through all the fine print, and I didn't see a place where it says I can't share about it here, so I'll probably put some stuff on Coby's Comics about it, depending on how the whole thing works out. This'll be my first class with Coursera, so I really have no idea what to expect. But the stuff on the Coursera page makes it sound really interesting!
