+ - The MOOCs Continue, This Time in SciFi/Fantasy Writing.... 3

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Inexplicably, the MOOC era shows no signs of abating. Beginning June 3 two MOOCs in Science Fiction and Fantasy will begin. The first, coming from well known MOOC provider Coursera, will be taught by University of Michigan professor Eric Rabkin, and will focus on a historical and psychological analysis of the genre, while the second will come from the university creative writing class of NYT bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, best known for his completion of the Wheel of Time book franchise. If this trend keeps up, maybe we can cross our fingers for a MOOC on screen writing from Joss Whedon soon..."

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.
