His first course, English Composition I: Achieving Expertise! (Duke University), concluded in June. He next undertook Internet History, Technology, and Security (University of Michigan), completing it in September.
Edward, how goes The Ancient Greeks course?
Good! The course technically finished on October 20th but students have until the 27th to complete the last quiz. I completed mine over a week in advance since I didn't want to wait until the last minute.
How have you liked this course?
I've enjoyed it. The professor, Andrew Szegedy-Maszak, was great with his video lectures and resources. It was all interesting, but I had to study more because of the amount of material that was covered.
What score will you be earning?
The last time I spoke with you, I was earning a high B, but I've managed to pull it up to an A, roughly a 94%, I think. The official scores will take one to two weeks after the last quiz for Signature Track students.
That's brilliant! Have you enrolled in any more courses, MOOC or otherwise?
I have! My next course is Genes and the Human Condition (From Behavior to Biotechnology) through the University of Maryland, College Park, which starts on November 4th. I wanted a humanities course, but there weren't any available for November. I'm debating about enrolling in a December course through iversity called Public Privacy: Cyber Security and Human Rights, but it overlaps with my January Coursera course by a few weeks. Otherwise, I may do a self-paced course between the Genes and the Human Condition course ending in mid-December and The Modern World beginning in mid-January. I'm also completing the last course in a career certificate program with Winter Park Tech starting the last week in October.
You're keeping yourself quite busy! Thank you so much for taking the time to update us.
