Online education has taken another large step in the past few weeks as two more of the world’s most prestigious universities opened their online courses to greater connectivity by using OpenStudy.
Open Yale Courses recently went live with 4 of their courses. All four courses can be found below:
- Financial Markets with Professor Robert Shiller
- Fundamentals of Physics with Professor Ramamurti Shankar
- Introduction to Ancient Greek History with Professor Donald Kagan
- Roman Architecture with Professor Diana E. E. Kleiner
The courses bring a greater variety of course options to the growing list of OpenStudy study groups. Roman Architecture and Ancient Greek History are great supplements to another recently added partner: MOMA’s SmartHistory.org. We’re confident the Yale reputation, along with their top caliber professors, will help unite these communities and create cross learning similar to what we cultivate and observe daily at OpenStudy.
Rounding off the more diverse options of study groups is the popular Financial Markets course taught by Professor Schiller. This course has received wide attention over the years because of its ability to bring real world examples into the classroom — demonstrated by its impressive rolodex of guest lecturers including Carl Icahn, Stephen Schwarzman, and David Swensen.
Over the Christmas holidays, NYU’s Open Education program expanded their course offering to a total of four. These course listings can be found below:
- American Literature I: From beginnings to the Civil War by Professor Cyrus Patell
- New York City: A Social History by Professor Daniel Walkowitz
- Introduction to Sociology by Professor Harvey Molotch
- Genomes & Diversity by Dr. Mark L. Siegal
NYU Open Education provides a unique online educational experience in the world of literature and sociology. Besides having one of the most impressive course designs in the open educational field, their New York City: A Social History course, is one of the “must take” courses. Similar to Yale, these courses offer a more well-rounded educational offering. This is unique from OpenStudy’s most popular courses which favor the maths and sciences.
High learning and advanced education have taken momentous strides in the last few weeks and it’s exciting to be part of the progression occurring.
