  • 10,000 Sign Up for Buffett-Backed Online Course on Giving

    The Chronicle of Philanthropy - 08/05/2013

    The first “massive open online course” devoted to philanthropy, launched last month with support from Warren Buffett and his sister, Doris, has drawn some 10,000 students, reports the Los Angeles Times.

    Participants in the free six-week course will hear video lectures by the Buffetts and other prominent philanthropists and will give away more than $100,000 provided by Ms. Buffett’s Learning by Giving Foundation.

    “I would have been happy if we got 1,000 students,” said Rebecca Riccio, founding program director of Northeastern University’s Students4Giving program, who is coordinating the class. She said students from 70 countries and across the United States have enrolled.
