Hyman co-teaching one of Cornell's first massive open online courses



ILR Associate Professor Louis Hyman and Associate Professor Ed Baptist of Cornell's Department of History Teaching will launch "American Capitalism: A History" in a "MOOC" format this semester.

It will be one of Cornell's first tuition-free massive open online courses—otherwise referred to as MOOCs. Three others will also be launched this semester.

"American Capitalism" will cover:

·         Work (slavery, wage labor)

·         Business (entrepreneurship, the corporation)

·         Consumption (retail, shopping)

·         Finance (markets, institutions, power)

"American Capitalism: A History" begins March 17. MOOCs are open to the public; individuals can audit Cornell MOOCs offered this semester without commitment and still access lectures, assignments and tests.

Information on Cornell MOOCs and free registration is available at https://www.edx.org/school/cornellx.z
