I think BU should follow the lead of MIT and other renowned academic institutions and allow the public to access content from courses for free.
BU actually just signed onto Edx, one of the new educational online platforms. Check it out here:https://www.edx.org/school/boston%20university/allcourses
I love this idea - I watch courses offered by UC Berkeley and MIT through my Roku. It's a great way to continue learning and streatch your brain.
