Trinity College Dublin has launched its first free online course, Irish Lives in War and Revolution: Exploring Ireland’s History 1912-1923 in partnership with FutureLearn.
The 6-week MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) starting 1 September 2014 is accessible via FutureLearn to anyone with internet access across multiple devices – computers, mobile phones or tablets. This collaboration will provide access to Trinity's quality education to students worldwide.
The course invites learners to explore the lives of men, women and children living through war and revolution and examines the political and social changes that made modern Ireland. By engaging with original sources, textual, visual and aural, and encountering contradictory viewpoints, participants will also learn about the contested nature of all history, and the challenges facing historians.
