What: 117 online course offerings in 16 categories (below) offered by the 16 national and international universities above.
Why: Coursera hopes to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. They want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.
If you are interested in online course work, try one of these introductory courses to see if you have the temperament for online learning. They are all introductory courses with no prerequisite requirements.
Deadline for registration: courses start at different times and run for different time periods, so registration would end before the class starts.
Description: Classes offered on Coursera are designed to help you master the material. You will watch lectures taught by the professors, learn at your own pace, test your knowledge, and reinforce concepts through interactive exercises. You’ll also join a global community of thousands of students learning alongside you.
I just signed up for a technology class and each class will have a YouTube video that gives an overview of the class (below), along with course info, info on instructor(s), course format and FAQs.
