WVU launching free online classes in February

  • February 3, 2013

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – There’s no homework, no tuition and no tests. No academic credit, either. But now anyone can become a college student.

In February, West Virginia University is launching a series of free online courses taught by professors.

The courses start Monday and are open to anyone anywhere. The only requirements are an Internet connection and an eagerness to learn something new.

The first course is called “Coping with our Robot Overlords.” The second Feb. 11 will focus on online relationships. It’s called “Love at First Like.”

A class on cyberbullying follows Feb. 18, and the month ends with “Understanding and Conquering Technology Overload.”

Communications professor Nick Bowman says the online courses allow students to do as much or as little work as they like.
