An Invitation to Join a MOOC on Walt Whitman

Dear Friends of Eretz,

I invite all of you to join me as distance students in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Walt Whitman being offered by Harvard University through edX.  The course is free and open to the public.  It will run from January 15 to March 14.  A certificate may be earned if desired, or you may simply choose to audit the course--you will get out of it what you put into it.

Follow this link www.edx.org to get to edX.  Once there, sign up for: Al12.2x Poetry in America:  Whitman.  I hope to "meet" some of you in the online course discussion groups.

Regards,

Steven Wittenberg Gordon, MD
Editor

PS:  Please email me swgordonmd@gmail.com if you live in the Kansas City area.  It would be fun to arrange a live meet-up for this course.
