Not all online learning is created equal. CopyrightX is a 12-week interactive class offered through joint venture of Harvard Law School, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and HarvardX. The networked course starts January 27, 2014 and comes highly recommended if you're interested in how the law seeks (or fails) to promote and protect creative expression.
This is no slapdash program. Harvard Law's William Fisher leads the lectures (Prof. Fisher directs the Berkman Center, among other activities), and students are divided into smaller sections for weekly discussions.
This is the class's second iteration. Those who completed the 2013 course gave rave reviews. It's well-organized, does not require specialized knowledge or background, and includes interactive events with special guests.
There is a non-minimal workload (syllabus here). And a four-hour final exam (last year's pass rate was ~80%; students who satisfy course requirements receive certificates).
Admission is free, but there's a cap and process to enrollment. The application period for the online sections opens December 13, 2013 and closes Sunday, December 22, 2013 at 11:00 PM CST.
Again—highly recommend for anyone who'd like to learn more about copyright. Here is a story about how the course started.
And even if the class doesn't fit your schedule or catch your fancy, check out Prof. Fisher's tremendous Flash "map" of © law.
