doubting Thomas that i am, i checked out the privacy policy and all that when they wanted my name and email just to sign up, but it would seem everything is on the up and up, they make their money selling credentials for completed courses, but if you just want information, the courses are free, evidently rated pretty highly and cover a wide variety of subjects.

thanks for introducing me to the site

I'm not quite sure if i want to get into studying how organic solar cells work, seeing as how i'm still just trying to figure out what to use for ground covers etc, but it's good to know that stuff is out there

Wow thanks for the link! I love Coursera and just finished a different course so it's time for a new one. I've also been learning as much as I can about organic cells lately so it's perfect.

I'm also glad to see that the course is still up and running.
You're not going crazy. You're going sane in a crazy word. Find comfort in this tiny ad:
