In early October 2010, NYU's first completely open courses were published on the Open Education Pilot website. This pilot launched with two exceptional courses. New York City: A Social History was taught by Faculty of Arts and Science Professor Daniel Walkowitz and focused on the social history of the city, tracing its development from a small 17th-century Dutch settlement into the multicultural metropolis it is today. American Literature I: From the Beginnings to the Civil War, taught by Faculty of Arts and Science Associate Professor and NYU Abu Dhabi Associate Dean of Humanities Cyrus Patell, is a survey of American literature and literary history, from the early colonial period to the eve of the Civil War.
