Scott Lord: Kierkegaard; Letter from Professor Jon Stewart, Copenhagen

Subject: Re: Kierkegaard mentor

Dear Scott,
Thanks so much for the kind e-mail and the interest in the course. Can I ask you to send me your cv, so we can explore the possibility of bringing you onboard as a course mentor.

All the best!

Dear Sir,
Without taking too much time to relate how much I enjoyed your online course, it has come to my attention that you are know offering Kierkegaard on demand. Allow me to ask.
Do you need a mentor for the course. Before my taking Kierkegaard I enrolled in the class Introduction to Philosophy, which subsequently went to an on demand after I had completed it. I was offered being a class mentor, which lasted for three months, and of course, consisted of passing the course for a second time.

Please consider my being a mentor for the on demand version of your course if needed. I have already written my supervisor in the event that such a choice were not your decision and am waiting her reply. If she approves me without the need of your decision, then I look forward  to seeing you after I rejoin the Coursera Mentor Community. If you are in contact with Ms. Amy Curtis of Coursera and can in fact recommend me I would appreciate any attempt you would make.

Thank You- Live Poetically.

Subject: Re: Volunteer mentors for Kierkegaard

Thanks Scott! I appreciate your willingness and enthusiasm to join the Mentor Program again. I do remember you. :)

Currently we don't have immediate plans to expand the Mentor Program into that course, but we'll certainly keep you updated if/when we do!

Dear Ms. Curtis,
       It has come to my attention that the Coursera class on Kierkegaard from the University of Denmark has switched to an on demand offering.
If for some reason, you do not get enough members in response to your need of mentors, please keep me in mind. I understand that it could be for three months and I would be available whenever needed.
I was previously a Community Mentor for the course Introduction to Philosophy from the University of Edinburgh.

    Thank you very much and please consider my being available.

Subject: Thank you for being a Community Mentor for Introduction to Philosophy

Dear Philosophy Mentors,

Thank you so much for serving as a Mentor in Introduction to Philosophy. You have been an integral part of the Coursera Community, and we really appreciate all of the time, energy, and effort you have put into helping your fellow learners. You've answered questions, engaged in discussions, and helped make the course a better place to learn. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Now, your 3 month term as a Community Mentor has come to an end. We will remove your Mentor badge and access to the Mentor Forum and Mentor Portal. You are, of course, welcome to remain a part of the course discussions, but you will need to re-enroll as a regular learner. Please let us know if you have any questions about this transition.
Again, thank you so much for all you've done, and we look forward to seeing you around in more Coursera courses to come!

Best regards,
Evan, Amy, and Marie
The Coursera Community Team

From: Modern & Contemporary American Poetry Course
Subject: ModPo starts in 48 hours

Scott Lord,
The latest information from Modern & Contemporary American Poetry by University of Pennsylvania on Coursera.
Dear Scott Lord & all those enrolled in our modern poetry course:

As you know, "ModPo" begins on Saturday, September 12, starting at 9 AM (Philadelphia time). That's a tiny bit more than 48 hours from now! After that time you can go here

and then enter the ModPo 2015 site, or you can go directly here (bookmark this URL):

On Sunday at 9 AM we will make available all the materials for the first week of our course. That will give us a full day on Saturday to introduce ourselves, look for study groups of interest, ask technical questions, try out the discussion forums, look over the syllabus, watch and listen to introductory videos and audio, and check out ModPo's own "Frequently Asked Questions" page.

Our FAQ page includes an audio guide to ModPo.

See the screenshot below. I've circled two links among those appearing on every ModPo web page. Try both of these links when you enter the site: "discussion forums," and "FAQ & audio guide."

We hope you enjoy our Saturday together—a day for initial explorations of the site and of the ModPo mode.

With best wishes from the Kelly Writers House,

- Al Filreis

Poem of the Day: "Hope" is the thing with feathers - (314)

by Emily Dickinson
"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I've heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
