More on YU's Arch of Titus MOOC

ONLINE EDUCATION: YU Joins World of Online Education with Arch of Titus Class (Eitan Lipsky, The Commentator).
Although Chanukah has concluded, Yeshiva University is still trying to spread its light as far as it can. In early December, the university took a big step in expanding its global impact by releasing a course entitled, “Arch of Titus: Rome and the Menorah,” on Coursera, a company that works with top universities to make some of their courses available online as massive open online courses (known colloquially as MOOCs).

This Yeshiva University online course has already been noted here, but this article has additional background and information. Follow the latter link for lots more on the Arch of Titus, and see also here.
