Here is an article from a friend of mine who also wrote a very nice little book, called Book Riding. His insights are very close to my view and I am happy to share this with you. Enjoy!
I’ve enrolled this November into “The Mind is Flat” course organised by FutureLearn, a private education company owned by The Open University UK (OU).
Now I must mention the fact that I love Open University. I first signed up with them on a physics course in 2010, and I have been doing courses annually with them ever since. At least in physics and math, the OU course books are the only books that made it possible for me to understand the subject of study; this year, I studied Quantum Mechanics, and it fulfilled a very old dream of mine to understand and work with the Schrödinger Equation.
