It’s still a thrill to score 100%

Quiz2
My quiz scores so far in ER22x — click to enlarge

Recently, I posted that I was anticipating with excitement an online course called Justice (ER22x) at edx.org.

I’ve been taking the course since mid-March and, like any good class, there are quizzes. They’re actually nail-biters since even though they are online, you only get once chance — just as you would in the real world.

I just finished Quiz #2 (there are a total of the five in the course). Quiz #2 was a little on the tough side — an escalation in difficulty that also maps to the real-world experience of taking a course like this. And there’s also a final exam which I am sure won’t be a cake-walk either.

Nearby I’ve posted my grades so far. To some, this will seem, ahem, adolescent. But I am amazed at just how good it feels to be engaged academically and the sense of accomplishment I feel. The online experience is so real, it feels just like it did in college. So, since it’s not a competition (one difference from the real world experience), I trust I won’t seem arrogant.

Bottom line: everyone can probably find something to excite their brains at edx.org. And the price is right: it’s free.
