Hogwarts is offering online classes

Muggle-born fans of Harry Potter can now get educated from Potter's alma mater from the comfort of their own home.

Hogwarts Is Here (www.hogwartsishere.com), a website created by Potter superfans, is offering a full catalog of "Ministry-approved" online classes for aspiring wizards and witches.

The site's banner displays "Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry" and the professional-looking layout could be mistaken for a small private school or community college.

You can sign up now for free. You even receive your very own Hogwarts acceptance letter, which is really just a fancy e-mail confirmation notifying you that you registered on the site.

While any credits or accolades you may receive from completing coursework won't transfer to other colleges or universities, Hogwarts Is Here takes its courses seriously, including homework assignments, essays, quizzes and tests.

First years will take courses like "Charms and Potions" before progressing through all seven years of academics.
