Philosophy Class Attracts 180,000 Students (Huffington Post)

Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, are breaking lots of enrollment records. So far, according to the Huffington Post, one of the largest classes has been a philosophy course taught by Duke University professor Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and University of North Carolina professor Ram Neta.

When it was offered last November, “Think Again: How to Reason and Argue” attracted 180,000 students, from Germany to Afghanistan. But the completion rates of MOOCs are not as high as traditional classes. Currently, completing a MOOC usually just rewards a student with a certificate.
