A group of amazing Harry Potter super fans have created a series of FREE online Hogwarts classes allowing you, for the first time, to take the classes you’ve always wanted. The website is a mix of a role-playing (a la Dungeons & Dragons) and a MOOC (massive open online course).
Unfortunately there is no Sorting Hat, but you get to pick your house. If you need help you can check out our quiz to find out where you should be. Once you’ve been “sorted,” you join your dorm, buy books (at a virtual Flourish & Blotts), and start a rigorous curriculum of classes like Charms, Herbology, Astronomy, History of Magic, Transfiguration, Potions, and, of course, Defense Against the Dark Arts. Each course consists of nine lessons, with a selection of assignments, like a 300-word Transfiguration essay in which you have to explore possible loopholes in one of the exceptions of Gamp’s Law.
You can also write for The Daily Owl. Not bad, huh?
