Over the week-end I signed up for a free Coursera class, E-Learning and Digital Cultures. I was wondering how Coursera does or will “monetize” their venture. This N.Y. Times article answers that question.
I am curious how this class will be. I admit, I am concerned that because it is free I will have an easy out. I wonder what the completion rates are for these classes? I do think it will be significantly higher for folks who obtain a certificate or, of course, class credit.
