I never intended to sign up for two courses at the same time, but I was simply unable to choose once I had read the course descriptions. I was searching for a philosophy course to get ready for Know Thyself, the UVa course that I will be taking in March, when I happened to see the other. Now that I have looked at both courses, I know that I am hooked for the duration! I have already learned that jumping between them will not work for me, so I am intending to work on the courses on alternate days to try to keep things straight as I work around my normal activities for the week. I plan to post my comments on edcmooc here by the end of each week.
