Cool FREE Equine Nutrition Course Online

Just ran across this awesome opportunity while browsing The Horse:

https://www.coursera.org/course/equinenutrition

From The Horse: "The University of Edinburgh's free online equine nutrition course through coursera.org is slated to begin Jan 28, according to a release on the university's website. The five-week long course will be instructed by Jo-Anne Murray, PhD, PgDip, PgCert, BSc(Hons), BHSII, RNutr, FHEA, senior lecturer in Animal Nutrition and Husbandry at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the university.

The release states that more than 10,000 individuals have already signed up to take part in the course. Because it is an online course, there is no limit on the number of attendees, the release said." -- The Horse | Univ. of Edinburgh Online Equine Nutrition Course Begins Jan. 28 | TheHorse.com

This is a 5 week course with recommended reading but not required: might have to check the library to see if they have some of the books Dr. Jo-Anne suggests! Check the Univ. of Edinburgh website link for the syllabus/etc.

(Note: I am just an excited student, not endorsed in any way )

Who else is signing up?

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.

Is anyone planning to get any of the suggested books? Maybe we can form a HF study group!

I'm so excited for this, I just hope it doesn't get in the way of my actual course work / I don't forget about it.
We should all keep tabs on each other ;D

I'm just a random high school student... Can I still sign up for this? Because I love to learn and this sounds really interesting.
