The Science of Religion on EdX 
I have been interested in why humans believe in religion ever since watching this discussion. This course is absolutely amazing and it even features content from individuals outside of religious studies, including Jordan Peterson and Jonathan Haidt. Each video contains lectures or interviews from experts on each respective subject in the course. Talking about the building block theory of religion? The course features the lady who invented it. Talking about data science in religion? The course features the researcher in charge of the largest religious database in the world. I think this course is a model for how online courses ought to be. And yes, it absolutely gets into the psychology involved.
P.S. this is an excerpt from my blog which is why it is written in a slightly different tone than I typically would use on HN.
