Thousands of participants have joined our MOOC. I since met people from Cambodia, Colombia, Yemen, Ukraine, Mongolia, China, and Spain -- just to name a few. 

What a great way to learn English and cross-cultural understanding. Very excited!

There is still time to register. Lessons begin this Wednesday. It's free.

good read
I've said this many times over the past six months: If 2012 was the year of the MOOC, 2013 will be the year of the anti-MOOC. Things are unfolding nicely according to plan. Faculty don't like MOOCs. Critiquing MOOCs is now more fashionable than advocating for them.

This is the story of Mahmud Angrini, a Syrian Medical Doctor who, amidst an ongoing civil war, has completed an astounding 25 courses. Thank you for living the Coursera mission by demonstrating that learning has no limits, Mahmud! http://bit.ly/1831kJ8
