What courses would you like to see at P2PU? Please provide at least a brief description with your suggestion; it’s more likely your ideas will be voted up that way. If you’re also willing to teach the course, awesome! Let us know in your suggestion, or even create it yourself on p2pu.org (it’s easy!). However, that’s not necessary to suggest a course, so keep the great ideas coming.

  3. Creative Writing

    Creative Writing- Fiction.
    It is an ideal course for online interaction with teachers and fellow students on a global basis.
    Tuition could be in English, but if by chance any professor-collaborators mastered another language (Spanish, e.g.) students could then submit their works in their own mother tongue.

  14. node.js

    Node is similar in design to and influenced by systems like Ruby's Event Machine or Python's Twisted.
