Study Groups are an ongoing project at Class Central. You can think of them as a book club, but instead of reading a book, we’re taking an online course together with learners worldwide, supporting each other through a discussion forum, and meeting weekly for a chat. Check below for details on our new Study Groups.

Intro to Marketing Study Group

Introduction to Marketing is offered by the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania on Coursera. We’ll learn about marketing, from branding to go-to-market strategies. How to stand out amid other companies? How to address customers’ needs? How to successfully launch a product? These are some of the questions we’ll explore.

  • Schedule: 4 weeks long, 2–3 hours a week, starting on October 21st.

Dino 101 Study Group

Dino 101: Dinosaur Paleobiology is offered by the University of Alberta on Coursera. We’ll learn about dinosaurs, these reptiles from a distant past that have captured the human imagination.
