Hey Inks

I just came across this interesting little gem on the Lotro subreddit: https://www.coursera.org/course/onlinegames

This instructor has chosen to use Lotro as the teaching tool! The course begins in July. I must admit I'm interested but already see issues with this guy's views just from watching the intro video on YouTube. He mentions the translation of literature to film to games, which is not how the Lotr lore is applied to Lotro, as we all know- Turbine seems to me have taken Lotr lore directly from JRRT's written word. I'm weary and generally intolerant of academic claptrap.

Anyhoo, enjoy!
