I got into CopyrightX! I’m very excited about this; it’s a subject near and dear to my heart and admission is competitive. The course begins this week with readings, a video lecture, and a discussion group on Friday. The syllabus is online, for the curious.
My discussion group looks fairly amazing. We have a couple of techies, at least one lawyer, an academic — really varied group in terms of age, careers, and especially location. Unsurprisingly, it’s a bunch of people who are good at expressing themselves with the written word. I’m finding myself excited about interacting with this bunch, which I didn’t really think about or expect.
I am going to try and blog along and talk about the material itself plus my thoughts on the online education methodologies. No promises but it seems like a good study aid. I’ll tag the posts as copyx and add a category if I can figure out the right one.
