The Ancient Greek Hero

Register now for the second session of The Ancient Greek Hero at edX!

Dear Friends,

On behalf of Gregory Nagy, the Board of Readers, and our whole community, we want to thank you for your enrollment in the first session of CB22x "The Ancient Greek Hero"!

Our goal from the start was to foster a global and ongoing dialogue where participants could engage with ancient texts and with each other in a meaningful way. Since launching the project in March 2013, we have enrolled over 36,000 independent learners from over 170 countries. We are inspired by the dedication of our participants and the supportive community that has developed over these few months. While we still have a great deal to learn and refine, we are encouraged by the
feedback we are receiving.

We also want to invite you to join the second session of "The Ancient Greek Hero", which starts now and runs through December. This second session will feature the same core content, but with upgrades in a few key areas.
Community Support -- We are synchronizing the schedules and content of the edX project with the related courses at Harvard. That means all the members of our community can read together and interact through the edX Discussion Board. And in the Discussion Board you will find more Community TAs and Mentors to answer questions and provide feedback.
Flexible Pacing -- While we suggest a schedule that synchronizes with the Harvard course, all the content will be available just a few days into the project. Since you can truly set your own pace, "The Ancient Greek Hero" can fit into your busy schedule.

Regardless of your participation level in the first session, we invite you to register for "The Ancient Greek Hero" now! If you were not able to participate fully the first time around, please join us as we engage with these timeless and transformative texts. If you achieved a Certificate of Mastery, we encourage you to stay connected, rethink your readings, and delve deeper into texts that reward a lifetime of study. We promise, Hour 24 is just the beginning.

All the best,

Leonard Muellner
Chair of the Board of Readers, The Ancient Greek Hero
