Coursera-Economic Issues, Food and You
- ennuisans Aug 20, 2013 06:26 PM
A free upcoming online course starting September 9.
"This course emphasizes the role of economics regarding its influence on food prices, the environment, and government policies."
I took the recently-ended Science of Gastronomy course and actually stuck with it until about half way through. Here's hoping I can do better on this one.
I didn't get as far as the second instructor, but Chow's conversational English was very good. It was when he was trying to explain complex neurowhatsits in simple language that I would often feel uncertain whether I got his meaning as intended.
Still not a worthless experience (I was among the 20% who weirdly thought vinegar tasted more sour with sugar added, so that was interesting) and no money lost.
twice my assignments missed being accepted to the time difference :( and twice they did not record for some reason I cant figure out except I used my phone rather my computer... soooooo I may not get my certificate....but I did pick up a few things..I dont believe in the "tounge map"
