Coursera at JQI Resumes
"Exploring Quantum Physics,” a massively open online course taught by JQI Fellows Victor Galitski and Charles Clark, begins its third edition on Monday, April 7. The course is available free, worldwide at Coursera.org.
Over 30,000 students have actively participated in the first two editions of "Exploring Quantum Physics," with 1500 obtaining certificates of completion. Pitched at the advanced undergraduate/beginning graduate level, the course features readings of original scientific literature (such as Albert Einstein's 1905 paper on the photoelectric effect) and lectures and exercises motivated by recent physics research. The third edition includes new material on magnetism and gauge potentials, which are topics of current research interest at JQI.
