The Chronicle of Higher Education reports May 30 that Coursera has agreed with 10 American state universities for provision of credit-bearing courses. This marks a clear shift for Coursera , which until now has focused on making free, online versions of courses taught by professors at elite colleges. “If you’re looking to really move the needle on fundamental educational problems, inside and outside the United States, you’re going to need to help people reach the first milestone, which is getting their degrees to begin with,” Daphne Koller, a co-founder of Coursera, said to the Chronicle.
