The University of Alberta is currently offering a free online course in Indigenous history. One of its pupils will be none other than Schitt’s Creek‘s Dan Levy and and he wants you to join him in enrolling in the class.

“It’s a 12-lesson, massive open online course that explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues from an Indigenous perspective,” Levy explained in a video he posted to Instagram and Twitter. “And I thought, if I am going to sign up and learn, maybe some other people would want to join me, and we could do this as a group.”

Levy plans to collaborate with University of Alberta professors and faculty to facilitate weekly virtual Q&A’s.

“We could better understand and delve deeper into the curriculum,” Levy continued. “Because if you’re anything like me, I was not a good student, I need kind of group support, and I thought this would be a really great way of doing that.”

Levy will run the livestreams Sundays at 3 p.m. ET on his Instagram and Twitter accounts.  “If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we actively need to relearn history.” You can sign up for the Indigenous Canada course here.
