A very international Biblical Archaeology MOOC

UPDATE ON ONLINE COURSE: Students from Pakistan, UAE, Oman join Israeli online biblical archaeology class. 8-week course, open to applicants worldwide, provides an introduction to biblical archaeology and a deep look at the remains of ancient civilizations in the Holy Land (Amanda Borschel-Dan, Times of Israel).
Students from Malaysia, Pakistan, Oman, and United Arab Emirates — countries that do not recognize the modern State of Israel — have joined hundreds of other curious minds from locations as far-flung as the Caribbean’s Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to study the Holy Land’s ancient biblical archaeology.
The class is Professor Aren Maier's MOOC, which was noted here. It sounds as though it is very successful.
