1. Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Computation (on edX, from UC Berkeley:, taught by Umesh Vazirani. Intro to quantum computing that made clear key ideas in quantum mechanics, almost in passing. The first of over 70 MOOCs I completed, not available at the moment.

2. Astrophysics (on edX from Australian National University, 4-part series: taught by Brian Schmidt and Paul Francis. Delightful. Plenty of math but mostly at undergrad level. A grand tour of current topics.

3. First Nights - Handel's Messiah and Baroque Oratorio (on edX from Harvard: taught by Thomas Forrest Kelly. Historical perspective and structure of the music. I was hooked from the first lecture. One of a series of 5 outstanding courses in the "First Nights" series, this is my favorite.

So many great MOOCs, so little time.

is there any way to view the old material from #1?
