New York Times to Offer Online Accredited Courses

What haven’t we learned from the New York Times? We’ve probably learned more from the Times than we’ve ever learned in a classroom. So it’s only fitting that now the Times will have a classroom of its own.

Huffington Post reports that the Times‘ Knowledge Network and New Jersey’s Fairleigh Dickinson University are teaming up to offer online courses in subjects ranging all the way from homeland security studies to global health care. The courses will be open to all students and they may be taken individually or used toward an academic certificate.

As much as we’d love to have Times‘ columnists teaching us their take on the world, the courses will actually be taught by Fairleigh Dickinson faculty (probably best to leave the teaching to professionals) but will feature content from the Times‘ digital content repository.
