Michael Sandel’s Famous Harvard Course on Justice Now Available as a MOOC: Register Today
Dec 25, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This post focuses on a new MOOC being offered by Harvard, a reprise of Michael Sandel's 2009 course, Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do? (YouTube - iTunes - Web). It also notes that EdX is offering a slew of ither new courses this spring, including The Challenges of Global Poverty, Justice, and The Ancient Greek Hero. All this makes me think of one aspect of these courses that has not really been discussed: coming from these major U.S. private universities, these courses offer a certain point of view and political perspective.
