UNT plans to offer non-credit classes online on Coursera within the next year


Recommended Posts

This concept is new to me. Does it really do anything to enhance the image and prestige of UNT? Are the other schools involved Harvard, Dartmouth, Michigan, Rice, Stanford, etc., or places like Lower Whaleshit Community College, Easyfield Community College, East Carjackastan University, etc.?

Is this just another creative way to piss away university funds? How have employers reacted when presented with "certificates of completion" from this mode of academic pursuit?

So many questions. I admit that I find the concept interesting, but only as a means to refresh/update certain areas of personal academic interest. 

ADDED AFTER SOME RESEARCH:

I reacted somewhat harshly to the article, for which I apologize. I still have questions but I concede that this endeavor has more merit than I saw at first blush.
