I am only ass uming that since it's an open class there wouldn't be a limit. I signed on and looked around seems like it's totally community driven. Kind of like a social media type class thing with some lectures and local guest brewers. I'm pretty stoked about it. I hope it isn't a major let down.

Here is the generic email they sent me for signing up. Not a whole lot of info.

Thank you for signing up for “Chemistry of Beer,” an open version of a popular course in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oklahoma.

You are about to embark on a one-of-a-kind learning experience through Janux. More importantly, you are joining a true learning community built to connect, engage, and inspire all who wish to learn.

Feel free to spread the word around about the course by forwarding this email or sharing about it through social media. Encourage your friends to join, add them as a friend, and then form a study group on the platform.

If you are a current OU student, you have the option to enroll in this course for credit. Enroll at ozone.ou.edu with the corresponding course number: CHEM 4970.

Expect more information soon as we get closer to the course start date, January 13, 2014. Looking forward to connecting soon!

All the Best,

Dr. Mark Morvant
Professor, Department of Chemistry
University of Oklahoma

I love the concept and signed up. Good looking out! I'm already enrolled in online courses (for business) but will do this in my "free" time. Really excited to learn!

I signed up, but it will be a struggle since I have no chemistry background

You'll have plenty of support. With all the people I imagine will sign up from here there won't be any shortage of knowledge to supplement the lessons.

I'm not sure if I am more concerned about the science being over my head or that they will water it down too much for the masses, as it is a free course available to everyone.

I want to be able to follow it but I want to understand the chemistry when it's over.
