Pre-registration MOOC Big History

6 October 2016

After 2010, when Bill Gates put Big History on the map, this theme grew immensely in popularity. More and more people started educating this theme, and now two large international conferences are being organized on Big History. This autumn, the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS) is launching a massive open online course (MOOC) big History to enable more people to follow this course.

This MOOC is no direct replacement of the open course Big History at the University of Amsterdam, but gives merely a great introduction of this theme. Short movies introduce certain sections of the history and astrophysicists, geologists, biologists, historians and many other scientists are heard over major academic questions. Your knowledge is tested by intermediate multiple choice questions and a small Big History assignment. The MOOC is aside Coursera also available on Chronozoom, YouTube and iTunes.
