"Harvard University’s free interactive course “Buddhism Through Its Scriptures” begins today on their online learning platform.
“Buddhism Through Its Scriptures” is the third module of the HarvardX series “World Religions through their Scriptures.”
The course is taught by Charles Hallisey, the Yehan Numata Senior Lecturer on Buddhist Literatures at the Harvard Divinity School. There are eight days of lessons presented through both video and text that can be completed on the user’s own time.
The course was previously available as archived content, but begins again today as an interactive course which includes discussion threads in each lesson. Students have until Aug 30, 2018 to complete the course, at which point its content will be archived. Students have the option of purchasing a certificate verifying completion of the course, but anyone can enroll and participate in the course free-of-charge."
