U-Va. Launches Free Thomas Jefferson Course Online
The massive open online course, or MOOC, is a joint venture of U-Va. and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. It is U-Va.’s 12th MOOC since the school began offering the courses a year ago. Others have covered topics such as the history of the modern world, business entrepreneurship, the influence of President John F. Kennedy, effective classroom teaching and the physics of how things work. Those who pass the courses don’t receive any credits toward a U-Va. degree.
