Coursera.org, Democratic Development ..
I have joined fro the course on Democratic Development (10 weeks starting from April 3 to June 12, 2013) offered on www.coursera.org, by Stanford University .. Even though India is the largest democracy in the world, our leaders and bureaucrats are not well informed on what constitutes principles of democracy. This course will help the citizens as well as the government officers and political leaders, what is the given in a democracy.
These courses are called Massive Open Online Courses ( MOOC) and is a good way to enable dissemination of knowledge in selected areas as taught by reputed Universities to the people of the world.
At the end of the course if you have successfully taken all the online quizzes at the end of each week as well at the end of the course, you are eligible for a certificate of completion from Stanford University.
