I was just reading the article "My First MOOC: The Planning Behind a Massive Open Online Course" -- at http://www.entreprene...­ -- and thought it might be of interest to the group re the common Meetup theme of growing the local tech ecosystem.

It's an interview with Professor Michael Goldberg about his new "Beyond Silicon Valley: Growing Entrepreneurship in Transitioning Economies" class, and to grab a quote:

"This is not a class about how to build a business. It's more about the ecosystem, having a broader understanding of how communities are supporting entrepreneurs. There's value for entrepreneurs and value for folks in local governments charged with supporting job growth. I wanted to attract a broad audience of people -- a combination of entrepreneurs, government leaders, folks in non-governmental organizations, folks involved in funding and private business leaders looking to give back."

The class itself started on April 28 on Coursera and, again, is free -- you can check it out at https://www.coursera....­
