University of Strathclyde's genealogy MOOC course

The University of Strathclyde's Genealogy team have a new free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) starting soon - here's the blurb:

Genealogy: Researching Your Family Tree. This free online course offered by the University of Strathclyde and FutureLearn will help you develop an understanding of basic genealogy techniques and how to communicate your family history. Starts the 29th of January and runs for 6 weeks (though you can sign up at any point during the course). The course has recently been updated to include more information on autosomal (or ‘cousin matching’) DNA testing and this run of the course will include ‘live’ updates from the RootTech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. So far more than 57,000 students worldwide have participated! Learn more and sign up at: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/genealogy
