Yes, I definitely would like to see more anthropology courses especially Social and Cultural Anthropology-related as my preference covering different countries. A mammoth task no doubt, however, the more options specialized / based on different countries or regions, e.g. Pacific, would appeal to those interested in this field of learning.

Also, for more institutes to sign up to Coursera to offer these type of courses related to their country and Indigenous peoples.
