(Iowa City) Everyone from published authors to "wet-behind-the-ears" writer wannabes have lots to learn in the University of Iowa's latest "Massive Open On-line Course". Susanna Shive of Iowa's International Writing Program says it's called "How Writers Write Fiction". She says they enrolled 7600 students in the first few hours. But, she says there's always room for more.
“It is completely unlimited and designed for a very large number of people,” said Shive.
Shive says they're hoping the Fiction course will build on the success of their first MOOC: "How Writers Write Poetry". She says they had more than 4-thousand enrollees in that course.
