Reader Andrea sent me a note about a new online course at MIT, one that you can watch for free. It starts tomorrow morning, and note that class times given are Eastern US times. It’s just one hour per week, and is likely worth your while.
Here’s the announcement, and notice all the Big Guns who are lecturing (click on screenshot to go to the page):
The class will run from September 1, 2020 through December 8, 2020 and begin each Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. ET. See the syllabus for lecture details.
How to watch it. The place where you go to watch the livestream is here, but you have to type in a password:
The class is open to allMIT students, as well as any eligible cross-registered students. The live stream will be available to the public, but only registered students may ask questions during the Q&A. To view the live stream, click on this link and type in the password: mit-covid. Miss a class? You’ll be able to view a video of the lecture on this page.
