Coursera - Free education. For real.

I know there are a lot of shitty sites out there claiming to be free and offering education for all but this is the real deal, guys. The following quote is taken directly from the website. Please signal boost this to give as many people access as possible! The more people enroll and participate, the bigger this site will get! 

We are a social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. We envision a future where the top universities are educating not only thousands of students, but millions. Our technology enables the best professors to teach tens or hundreds of thousands of students.

Through this, we hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.”

Teacher suspended for article on gay animals

Scientific arguments by people who are not scientists based off the abstracts of publications, suspension of teachers for no real reason?

Scientific illiteracy is a huge, and growing problem. I vote we use the interwebs to spread science as fast as we can. Ready, set, biology blog!
