Antioch U. Will Offer MOOC’s for Credit Through Coursera

Antioch University announced on Monday that it had reached an agreement with the Silicon Valley start-up company Coursera to offer students college credit for MOOC’s, the free online courses that have recently captured the attention of elite universities across the country. In a news release, the university, which has five campuses in four states, said its Los Angeles location would offer the Coursera courses “for less than the per-course cost of tuition and fees at either of the California public four-year university systems.” The Los Angeles campus created a pilot program this fall in which its students could enroll in two Coursera courses created by the University of Pennsylvania; three additional courses will be offered this winter, and the university hopes to introduce an expanded program nationwide next year.
