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.
