We dropped hints here and there, but we're finally officially announcing it: this summer we are launching our very first foray into the world of MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) with the folks at Coursera. The course is called Fundamentals of Tinkering, and is meant to be our most comprehensive and articulate (to date) attempt at talking about what we do and why, take a detailed look into why we design our activities they way we do, and offer some starting points for you to begin your own tinkering experience. We have chosen circuits as the theme for this initial course, because they are very "tinkerable" and can be approached from a wide variety of directions, from very low- to very high-tech.
We are very excited about sharing our constantly evolving thoughts on our passion for tinkering via this medium, and although we certainly had to make accommodations in order to use such a video format to talk about using your hands to learn about the world, we are proud of the final product. Most importantly, this is a chance for us to start a community of people interested in taking a first step into this world, or deepening their enthusiasm.
Sign up on the Coursera website, and see you all this summer!
