The three courses to be offered are International Politics on the Korean Peninsula taught by Professor Dong-Joon JO, Introductory Physics taught by Professor Seonho CHOI and Robot Mechanics and Control taught by Professor Frank Chongwoo PARK. These courses are recordings of actual classes at SNU which were offered last spring semester. EdX was founded by Harvard and MIT and now offers over 160 courses from 34 world renowned universities. more
