Youth Culture Update: Getting a LOST education | YouthWorker.com

Lost Education — ABC’s obsessive, geekified show Lost has always challenged its viewers’ intellect, incredulity and, occasionally, patience. Now the show’s challenging fans in a whole new forum: an online college. Lost University offers Internet classes — taught by bonafide college professors — on some of the show’s intellectual underpinnings. Subjects include philosophy, physics and hieroglyphics, among others. “It’s a great medium, because you don’t want a TV show to become didactic,” says Caltech professor Sean Carroll, who’s teaching a class titled “Introductory Physics of Time Travel.” “It’s the perfect marriage of entertainment and education.” (Los Angeles Times)
