Coming to terms with your own limitations starts the process of renewal of thinking, shared Australian preacher Nick Vujicic
MANILA, Philippines - Learning and getting a degree can be difficult if you're cash-strapped. Online learning initiatives such as Coursera help by providing education in various fields without a pay requirement.
Now, 5 Coursera courses have recommendations for college credit, helping to increase the legitimacy of online learning initiatives as beneficial in bridging the gap.
Coursera announced Thursday, February 7, that "the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for five courses on Coursera."
Four of these are undergraduate credit courses:
One of the courses, Algebra from the University of California, Irvine, is recommended for developmental math vocational credit.
By signing up for an ACE CREDIT recommendations through their Signature Track and then taking a credit exam at the end of the course. Students "can take these special proctored assessments via a webcam at their convenience."
The Next Web explains the pricing for acquiring credit for these courses, saying that "charges will range from $60 to $90 for the proctored exam and $30 to $99 for the Signature Track. As a result, ACE CREDIT recommendations for the equivalent of two to three college credits per course will have a total cost of between $90 and $190."
Students who complete a pre-approved course can get certification from ACE. Afterwards, they can present it to one of 2,000 colleges or universities that support ACE credit considerations. - Rappler.com
