YOU SIGNED UP FOR WHAT?

Ever look at something that you’ve to sign up for, and find the cost and time spent on it is a waste of time? Then out of the blue comes a university course that’s free.


Sign up anywhere in the world for Indigenous Canada, the brainchild of the University of Alberta., and it won’t cost you a penny.


I can only imagine it was greeted with possible shrugs until along comes Emmy nominee Daniel Levy, co-creator of ‘Schitt’s Creek signing up for it. Not only that, Levy promoted the online University of Alberta version of the course in a video on his social media site.


Imagine the professor who put it out there hoping there would be enough interest to make it worth the effort.

What happens? Some 138,367 have signed up so far.


The course itself has 12 sessions exploring Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in Canada.


Levy plans to host weekly discussions with the course professors, starting today. (Oops. Starting yesterday.) He told the Canadian Press, “If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we need to actively relearn (our) history that wasn’t taught us in school…”


Author’s comment: Good for Daniel. Mind, you can’t go into this without realizing you’ll give up a good three hours a week of your time to get the most out of the project.
