Maine Professor Ensures Course Is Taught, Even After He Dies

After a startling pancreatic cancer diagnosis last summer, longtime University of Southern Maine psychology professor John Broida rushed to complete an online Psych 101 course he was developing.

Two months later – just days after the course began – he died.

But his online course, populated by videos of Broida lecturing and using the quizzes and tests he developed, remains on track with more than 90 students enrolled.
