Want to learn about lava? For free?
Two Syracuse University professors are teaming to teach their first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) together, Syracuse.com reports. It’s called “The subject is Lava.”
Bob Wysocki, assistant professor in the department of art, and Jeff Karson, professor in the department of earth sciences, have become a lava-making celebrity team, holding monthly lava pours on SU’s campus, and being reported on by national media outlets like Earth magazine and Gizmodo.
Their lava project website has received more than 5 million hits in the last 18 months, said Karson, so they are expecting a large turnout for the class.
