A free online science course offered by UBC and Stanford University researchers has attracted more than 130,000 registrants, including learners from every Canadian province (400 from BC), every US state, and 183 countries. The massive open online course (MOOC) on game theory is the largest MOOC involving a Canadian university delivered through the US-based Coursera platform. In May, UBC will pilot 3 additional MOOCs, whose topics include genetics, computer science problem design, and climate literacy. UBC Science News
