    Yes! I've watched that one multiple times! I'm devouring the Intro to Western Philosophy one right now. Huge fan here!

    Thank you, pickandgrin. I think that is the way forward for me, I just have to figure out when would be the best time to jump in. I almost jumped in over the summer but with our move in and all the unknowns for the year, we decided it was beat to wait.

    Non-credit was just the thing for me, Beorn. I'm at an audit-only season of life, but I'm working hard on my own. Of course Mr. Cothran and the course material itself were excellent but the icing on the cake was the incredible level of educated-ness present among the attendees. I'm not talking about people with degrees (though I am sure they were present, too). I am talking about people who read, think, and ask good questions. A lot of them were homeschool parents. I highly recommend a non-credit elective option here and there as time allows. I'm looking forward to watching MC grow and flourish. I have talked to multiple educators over the last year who have had a chance to teach homeschool parents various topics. The unanimously said that teaching motivated adults is a treat!

    I want to take some of these classes, but I am torn on the credit/no-credit option. I think I would take it more seriously for credit, but time and expectations are my concern. I could apply, but with a bachelors and masters in engineering and very little humanities background I am not sure I am up to snuff. I would be interested in what one should cover before jumping into these classes.

    We're going to need a Memoria College section here one day. When/if the crazy busy-ness subsides, I'd like to hear about your experience this summer.

    I put OT, but is Aristotle ever truly OT? I don't think so...

    Memoria College: If you enroll in this elective class can you watch the class recordings after the fact, and if so, for how long? I'm not sure I can be available in that window but am super interested in this course (non-credit)!
Working...
