Screen shots: Musicologist John Covach (left) records a lecture for his course on the history of rock ’n’ roll in Lower Strong. The course will be one of the first online, noncredit courses offered by the University through Coursera, one of the leading sites for massive open online courses, or MOOCs. The University joined Coursera this spring. In getting his lectures ready, Covach, the Mercer Brugler Distinguished Teaching Professor and chair of the Department of Music in the College as well as a professor of music theory at the Eastman School, was joined by communications associate Will Graver (camera) and Eric Fredericksen, the University’s associate vice president for online learning.
