Massachusetts makes MOOCs of the morning

edX cooks up cuisine and coding from MIT and Harvard U

MIT’s most popular MOOC is running again (via edX) – introduction to computer science and programming, using programme language Python. It’s one million users so far.

Back from the river a bit, Harvard U is offering a MOOC (also edX), on cuisine, not coding. “Top chefs and Harvard researchers explore how traditional and modernist cooking techniques can illuminate basic principles in chemistry, physics, and engineering.”
