As (primarily) a student of science, I signed up for ModPo looking to expand my horizons, but with no intent to delve very deep or even finish the course. After the first week, however, that all changed: the course was taught in a style that draws people from all backgrounds into the global discussion of modern poetry. I was hooked, and ended up looking forward to the new videos each week and (joyfully) spending hours perfecting my essays. The professor, Al Filreis, is very engaged and helps to make the class into an intellectual community. Overall, ModPo has been one of my favorite MOOCs - definitely give it a try!
