I'm so excited! I just registered for my first Coursera class!  This very cool move makes me a member of a community of hundreds of thousands of students who are taking courses online.  The philosophy at Coursera is to create an online opportunity so that anyone, anywhere can take courses from  top universities, all free!  They offer about 338 online courses from 62 universities!

I'm starting with a class on "Nutrition, Health and Lifestyle"!  It's an eight-week course and the anticipated workload is 2-4 hours per week.  In between snacking, I should be able to handle that!  This one is taught by a top nutritionist from Vanderbilt University.  I'm so excited. 

Eager to start? Check it out for yourself:
