January 11th, 2018 at 03:01

The University of Nottingham has some interesting MOOCs – free online courses – coming up in the near future.

The Qur’an Between Judaism and Christianity. Starts Monday 15th January

Get an introduction to the history of the Qur’an, and its relationship with Judaism and Christianity. This online course will illustrate how the Qur’an situates itself as part of, and as a correction to, the religious discourse of the Jewish and Christian communities of Late Antique Arabia.  The course will use the Qur’an, as well as Jewish and Christian historical documents, to reconstruct the religious landscape to which the Muslim scripture reacts in a pointed, precise and nuanced way.

This will give you a historically more informed understanding of nascent Islam, and will allow you to reconsider many of theological and cultural tenets of Late Antique Judaism and Christianity.

Designing E-Learning For Health – starts Monday 12 February

The Health E-Learning and Media Team (HELM) at the School of Health Sciences  are re-running the open online course Designing E-Learning for Health.
