Interview with Peter Bol, Harvard’s Vice Provost for Advances in Learning

Today, we will be visited by Peter Bol, Harvard’s Vice Provost for Advances in Learning and one of the professors behind a new  HarvardX courses on the history of China.

ChinaX is one of the most ambitious MOOCs to date, one that experiments with – among other things – how a course can be defined in terms of time now that technology has freed professors from the tyranny of the semester.

There is still time (over a year, in fact) to sign up for the course so enjoy today’s show and hope to see you in class.

    I am taking ChinaX because I happen to be headed to China and want to know about the history of this amazing country. Can you imagine how pleased I was to discover Harvard’s ChinaX which is being taught by Dr Peter Bol at Harvard. It is easy to use—has terrific content and so convenient. Now I know a little about the QIN and HAN dynasties and more…which is truly enriching…..Thanks Jonathan for interviewing Dr Bol.
