Distance learning about economics, politics and the environment

I was planning to "re-run" my EEP100 class between Jan and May this year, but I am too busy. I am thinking of doing it in the fall, but only if there are at least 50 people committed to participating. Commitment requires that you pay $100 each, with a $50 rebate for completing the course.

The course would require that you read 2-4 books and several academic papers, that you watch my archived lectures (also available on MP3), take 2 exams, and (usually) participate during twice-weekly online chats, to discuss the materials. There will also be a wiki/discussion forum for students to help each other.

Your thoughts?
