Dan Colman at Open Culture and some of his colleagues have developed a free course presented by Stanford University. The course will explore the geography of US Elections and explore the idea of “Red States” versus “Blue States.” The course starts October 15th and runs for five weeks to include reflection on the outcome of the 2008 election. Professor Martin Lewis will be the moderator of discussions. You can read more about the course here or watch the introductory video below.
