One of the many things I do on the side (although it is becoming increasingly difficult to identify what in my life is on the side of what) is teach online courses for Ed2Go/Cengage Learning. I love doing it, my students are cool, and it’s fun teaching “personal enrichment” classes for people who’ve decided they just want to learn a little something. A list of my courses is below; click on any link to get more information or register.
