Coursera Update

I just finished my first Coursera course: Dr. Mohamed Noor's "Introduction to Genetics and Evolution."  I recommend it! (It's being offered again starting January 4.)

Here are the courses I've decided to take on Coursera starting next  month:

  1. Calculus: Single Variable
  2. Game Theory
  3. The Modern World: Global History since 1760 (Somehow I got an MA without ever taking a modern history course!)
  4. How Things Work 1
I'll probably have to drop one or more of them, since my comprehensive examinations are approaching. But I think a better grasp of these subjects will help me out with one of my biggest weaknesses as a philosophical explicator and inquirer: giving strong, lively examples!
