A Totally Free Parapsychology MOOC

If you've already encountered websites like Coursera, edX, and Academic Earth, then I probably don't have to tell you that massively open online courses (MOOC's for short) are hot stuff right now.  Being a bit of a Coursera junkie myself, I have completed courses offered by top universities on everything from science writing to music production and finance - all for free and all in the privacy of my own home.  So imagine my excitement to learn that some seriously hard-working professionals have banded together on the platform to offer the world a totally free Parapsychology MOOC in 2015. 

The course starts this Monday, January 5th, and during its roughly 6 week run, MOOC participants will be treated to 22 content lectures from researchers, scientists, educators, graduate students and experiencers from the field of parapsychology. Enrollment is quickly approaching 600 students with wide international representation, so joining the course will provide lots of opportunities for cultural exchange.  And if the online course structure is not your thing, keep an eye on the Parapsychology Online YouTube channel, as the lectures from will be appearing there after a couple of days.

More course details are available at the Parapsychology Online Wordpress site, or you can head straight to Wiziq and sign up for the course right now.

I'll see you there.
