July 2, 2021
The University of Alberta’s “Indigenous Canada” course, which focuses on Indigenous history and key issues, has recently seen a large enrolment spike. CTV News reports that the enrolment increased after the mass grave was found at the site of a Kamloops residential school. “The week after the discovery, registration went from its normal steady 1,000–2,000 new enrolments per week to over 40,000 new enrolments,” said a UAlberta spokesperson. The spokesperson explained that the free, 21-hour course has been the most popular in Canada on Coursera, and that its popularity has grown around the world. CTV News UAlberta (Course) (AB)
