Big History makes history

Big History has gone global with the launch of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Coursera, alongside other courses from leading international universities.

The course, comprising six modules and led by Big History founder Professor David Christian, will be accessible on demand to people from all over the world.

It takes learners through the history of everything, starting with the creation of the universe during the Big Bang, up to the present time and shows how the universe has increased in complexity through eight thresholds that combine a set of ingredients with just-right ‘Goldilocks conditions’.

Professor Christian will also be talking about Big History’s unique approach to telling the story of our universe at the upcoming Global Alumni Impact Series at RSA House in London on Tuesday 13 October.

He will give alumni and guests a wide-angled look at the complexity of life and humanity, set against our slim share of the cosmic timeline, allowing them to explore 13.8 billion years and think about history, and their place in it, as never before.
