Higher ed systems in 10 states turn to Coursera’s open online courses

May 30, 2013 by

The movement of ‘‘Massive Open Online Courses,’’ which began with elite universities making their courses available online to the masses, is rapidly moving into the trenches of public higher education.

On Thursday, 10 large public university systems — including the giant state systems of New York, Tennessee, Colorado, and the University of Houston — will announce plans to incorporate MOOCs and platforms offered through for-profit Coursera into their own teaching.

The plans vary widely. Some institutions will focus on improving prep courses for students coming into the system, others on matriculated students both online and on-campus, and still others will be developing their own MOOCs to teach students at other institutions in their states.
