History of Rock (University of Rochester - Coursera course)


1. This is a Study Group for the students of the University of Rochester's course - History of Rock.

2. This course is taught by John Covach. He received his B.Mus., M.Mus. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Michigan.

3. In this Study Group, we will be discussing the video lectures, weekly readings, and assessments of the course.

4. We will also help our peers in studying for the weekly quizzes, assignments, midterms and final.

5. Through this process of collaborative learning, we will get to know each other, become Facebook friends and more.

6. Although this Study Group has been setup for the first edition of this course, it will be kept open indefinitely so that new students can come, join any time, and leverage the discussions, notes of the students of the earlier edition of the course.

7. Some of the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are overwhelming at times with success rates of 5 to 10%. Hence, it is important to support each other.

8. More importantly have fun.

Best Wishes,
