The Venture Lab at Stanford thanked me for registering for their Crash Course on Creativity.  The welcome email reads:

The online Crash Course on Creativity starts in less than two weeks. I am delighted that we have 24,000 people signed up from all over the world! Feel free to invite others to participate by signing up at: http://venture-lab.org/creativity

Inspired by the advances in online education (see www.epic2020.org and television show 60 minutes recent piece on Kahn Academy), I couldn’t resist experiencing an online creativity course. Stanford Technology Ventures Program’s Executive Director Tina Seelig teaches the program. You can see and hear her views on the subject here.

Will keep you informed as it goes.  Although I know very little about the program, I’m hoping to use it to collaborate with others to give further shape and energy to World Creativity and Innovation Week, April 15 – 21, now in its 11th year.

New levels of learning ho!
