Had enough of scrolling aimlessly through social media challenges and pet postings? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but how about spending those screen-time hours on something a bit more productive?
Online instruction conduits Class Central and Coursera are offering a host of complimentary classes from Ivy League institutions, some with free certification through end of May. How about:
• The American Renaissance: Classic Literature of the 19th Century, from Dartmouth.
• Rhetoric: The Art of Persuasive Writing and Public Speaking, from Harvard.
• American Contract Law II, from Yale.
These MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses, are there for the taking.
