I am a Franklin resident, a lecturer at Brown University, and an avid reader of Franklin Matters :-)
I was wondering if you might be interested in promoting a course I am teaching online starting at the end of the month. The course, Exploring Neural Data, is offered for free to anyone, on the Coursera platform. Brown University did a write-up about it today: https://news.brown.edu/articles/2014/09/mooc
I thought it might be fun for members of the community to participate in the course, so I was hoping that Franklin Matters might be a way for them to become aware of it. The course has no prerequisites, and would even be appropriate for advanced high schoolers with an interest in neuroscience and/or computer programming. Here is the link to the course: https://www.coursera.org/course/neuraldata
Please let me know what you think and if you need any more info!
