Open University Week One

Only one day in this 8 week course on character writing, and I've met fellow classmates from the US, Brazil, Scotland, Wales, China, and Portugal. We'll be hearing from notable authors such as Maya Angelou, Jane Elmore, Jude Piesse and more. I recommend anyone checking out this fabulous educational opportunity. There are courses of all disciplines available at the Open University. Enrollment is free. For a fee, once you have completed a course you can get a certificate of participation. No college credits are given either. There are no graded tests. Just a couple quizzes. Your assignments are interesting. What is the real excitement for me is the chance to hear from successful authors about their work. Some of this is done by video and some is the author's written comments. This Open University experience allows for students to talk to one another by posting under a student's profile. Eventually we will be critiquing each other's work.
