Ever wonder how you’d fare in a zombie apocalypse? AMC, Instructure and the University of California, Irvine today announced the joint production of a massive open online course (MOOC) exploring a broad range of topics through the lens of a hypothetical zombie apocalypse. The free, eight-week MOOC, titled “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead,” will be offered on Instructure’s MOOC platform, Canvas Network, and will be taught by a multidisciplinary team of UC Irvine faculty: Zuzana Bic, public health; Joanne Christopherson, social sciences; Michael Dennin physics; and Sarah Eichhorn, mathematics.
The first class is scheduled for Mon., Oct. 14, the day after the Season 4 premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead. The course will run for eight consecutive Mondays through Dec. 2. Because the series will air at different times around the world, Canvas Network will put in place provisions to help international participants avoid spoilers

“In geek culture, there is a big pirates vs. ninjas war,” Hurwitz says. “I’m on the pirates side. I think pirates do a lot more. They do sword fighting, sailing, collecting treasure. All ninjas do is hide.” And what do the students receive? The certificates, authorized by the “swashbuckling” Institute, are printed on faux parchment and affirm that the named “salty dog’’ is entitled to a pirate certificate “with all its privileges and obligations thereof.” And surely they celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19.
Yea Gaz, Ive thought of that scenario. The Rage virus was not to different than Rabies on steroids, without the fear of water or taste for human flesh lol.
