Model thinking and game theory: more free online classes

Via StrategyProfs reader Andrew Boysen’s Twitter feed (@boysenandrew) — some upcoming, very cool, free online classes: Model Thinking by Scott Page (University of Michigan) and Game Theory by Matt Jackson and Yoav Shoham (Stanford).

Love this trend of free online classes, I’m auditing that mega Artificial Intelligence class just to see how a class with 100,000+ registered students might actually work (I’m guessing a small fraction actually do the work – but still fascinating).

Here’s the pitch for that class by Scott. Sounds fantastic.

    This is great! I’d so much rather learn online from an expert teacher than from a book or from a mediocre teacher in person. I think that once reliable tests of comprehension and application can be developed, mediocre teachers better watch out!

    Yeah, having taken the class, I’m sure you’re right about only a small fraction doing the work, but… a lot (maybe most) at least watched the lectures.

    I did just enough work to be able to follow the lectures, but got behind about 2/3 of the way through and just quit.

    Still, it’s a great way for people to get a feel for other fields.
