In early, 2013, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill announced a new partnership with Coursera, an online education company that provides a platform for delivery of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Coursera partners with the top universities around the world to offer non-credit courses online for anyone to take, for free.
UNC-Chapel Hill currently has eight MOOCs in its Coursera Library. Most of these courses have completed their initial offerings, and will be available again periodically. If you would like to be notified when new offerings are scheduled, click on the course links below and add your name to the watchlist.
Coursera’s online course platform is free and available to anyone, anywhere. It uses a blend of video lecture segments, interactive quizzes, online message forums and other measures to teach students and later evaluate their mastery of subject material. For more information, visit Coursera.org
If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a future course, please contact Friday Center director, Robert Bruce, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
