The New York Times Knowledge Network classes enable far-flung students to stream the expertise of its journalists and other professional staff, backed by partnerships with prestigious academic institutions and the paper’s own resources. Self-paced classes slide as speedily or as languidly forward as each student’s schedule allows. Parents can peer inside the mysterious minds, if not the mysterious bedroom-floor piles, of uncommunicative offspring with Exploring the Teenage Brain or Teaching Teens About Money. Nuclear Power After Fukushima draws on lecturer Matthew W. Wald’s 30 years of reporting on the nuclear-power industry in an hour of up-to-the-minute insights on the recent disaster and efforts at recovery.

Alternatively, the Writing Series conducts sparks of insight from the paper’s scribes to the keyboards of its pupils, teaching them vital language skills. Editing for Everyone helps untangle sticky issues such as punctuation, grammatical errors, and distinguishing reliable information sources from seemingly reliable animated GIFs. Or, experience the thrill of immediate publication with an array of courses on blogging. Throughout the semester, students will work through daily lessons at their own pace, dive into online discussion forums, and tune in to scheduled live sessions with the instructor—honing their mastery of proper prepositions and concocting an emoticon to perfectly express studious attention.
