More Course Providers

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 6.20.44 PMCanvas provides mostly free classes from a wide variety of universities and subjects, including one on the World Cup and integrating data into journalism. Some classes are self-paced, while others have fixed start and end dates.

 

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 6.24.03 PMOpenLearning provides lots of tools for students to aid them with their learning. From a personal blog upon sign-up to real-time data on how many students are enrolled in each class, the students are at the center. In addition, a “karma” system encourages forum and class participation.

In the Course Finder, when you click on a video, a pop-up window appears, making it easier than ever to see if you’re interested in a course without having to leave the Finder. This also happens on specific Course Pages.
