Zombies getting a pat on the back. MSU's online course "Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse" has won an award for "the best fully online course."
The summer elective course focuses on human behavior during catastrophes and the instructor thought adding a zombie element would make it less boring.
"When this first began, I didn't know if anyone would sign up for the class. The most wonderful thing is to hear the feedback and response from the students that they've enjoyed the class, had fun while they were learning."
MSU students weren't the only ones to sign up for last summer's class. The instructor says about half a dozen people from the general public and a couple people from China also took the course. Enrollment is now open for the summer session.
