Yale To Launch Its First MOOCs In January 2014

Professor Amar will offer “Constitutional Law” – the first Yale Law School online course of any type. Professor Bloom brings his “Moralities of Everyday Life” course - and years of experience teaching online through the Yale Summer Online program - to the platform. Diana Kleiner, the visionary behind Open Yale Courses, will continue to innovate with her “Roman Architecture” course. And, lastly, Bob Shiller, the 2013 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, is ready to teach the world “Financial Markets” for free.
