Early Stages of Course Development

We’ve been looking at the possibility of offering C4SS online classes in anarchist theory and related matters for a while now. After I blogged about some course ideas on my personal blog recently, Gary Chartier and I began discussing in greater detail what such a series of courses might look like.

Although there would ultimately be a series of such courses, we’ll probably initially start out with just one while we work out how to make best use of whatever courseware we set up (probably Moodle) and otherwise get the operational and administrative procedures nailed down.

The following is subject to further revision, but friends and supporters of the Center are encouraged to review and offer feedback on this initial course description for the proposed ATP101 class.

All course materials will be freely available on the Internet. Because these will be instructor-led classes requiring labor from the teacher, a nominal fee of approximately $25 per course will probably be charged.

  1. $25 sounds like quite the bargain! What form of payment will you be accepting? Also, can I register under my psuedonym using a public key signature? Can I receive certification under my psuedonym?


  2. This is an extraordinary idea. I would gladly pay $25, or more, for such a course. You might check out The Online Freedom Academy (tolfa.org) for some ideas upon which you could expand. I am excited to see such a project move forward and I cannot wait to participate.


  3. Now that I have read the course description, it seems you will not need any ideas from TOLFA. You pretty much have a complete course ready to go. This pleases me greatly. I am ordering The Market for Liberty this very evening!
