The New York Times Knowledge Network Expands Online Offerings

The New York Times Knowledge Network (www.nytimes.com/knownow) announced the launch of its second year of online programs, with 47 programs at 15 educational institutions and organizations across the country. The greatly expanded roster of fall programs covers a wide range of topics, including business, writing, history, health, and politics. The programs use The Times and its journalists as teaching resources for personal enrichment, professional development, certification programs, and some credit-bearing programs. In addition, many programs feature live webcasts that allow students to interact with and ask questions of participating Times reporters and editors.

Last fall, the Knowledge Network hosted eight programs at four institutions and garnered strong engagement from the course participants, who enjoyed the ease of access to New York Times content and other participants, as well as the opportunity to connect with Times editors and journalists. Seven of this semester’s participating institutions are returning from last year.

The Knowledge Network offers online access from anywhere in the world to learning opportunities from world-class institutions, combined with exclusive interactive content from The Times’ extensive archive. Times editors and journalists are collaborators and participants in shaping the curriculum, with 20 participating in this semester’s programs.

The Knowledge Network, which uses the EpsilenTM platform, was launched in September 2007 to deliver lifelong learning programs on timely subjects. The New York Times Co. is the majority owner of BehNeem, LLC, a company that has secured a license to the EpsilenTM Environment. A full list of programs can be found at www.nytimes.com/knownow.
