So, my own thing that I'm learning right now is mostly copyright. As people who've been reading my journal for a bit know, I'm currently in the next to last week of the CopyrightX class.

There's a Harvard Law class (that meets twice a week) and they have run an online version for more than five years now that has the same lectures, some of the same readings (we skip the ones not available online, basically) and have an online sectional with a teaching fellow (a 3L student).

My section (probably because it's a Thursday afternoon slot in my time zone) is mostly people in Europe or Asia, about 2/3 of whom are lawyers or law students.

I'm finding it deeply interesting and very useful in filling in a bunch of gaps in 'why is that copyright thing like that' knowledge, but it's also been very brain consuming. It takes me somewhere between 1.5 and 3 hours to get through notetaking on the lectures, and that requires high-quality brain time, which is sometimes in short supply (especially after work.)

I expect to be talking about my thoughts on it (and who else might be interested) when I'm done, but everything except the sectionals themselves is available for free online for individual review at the copyx.org website.
