Great Learning Opportunity: Coursera’s Introduction to Sustainability

I have enrolled in this free online course: Introduction to Sustainability by Dr. Jonathan Tomkin who is the Associate Director of the School of Earth, Society and Environment and a research Associate Professor in the department of Geology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Based on my current experience with Coursera, where I am working on the course Introduction to Finance by Professor Gautum Kaul, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan (yes, another free online course), this will be a great course for those who wants to learn about sustainability. The added bonus is, if you are keen to complete all the assignments, there will be a certificate of completion!

I heard from online forum that some universities and colleges are even giving credits to those who are awarded these certificates of completion! So it does give you a great incentive to learn.

This course starts on 27 August 2012….you have not much time to decide!
