Should you pay for a verified MOOC certificate? A lot has changed since I last wrote a post on whether you should pay for a verified certificate from a MOOC.

Should you pay for a verified MOOC certificate?

If you’re just finding me now, my project is to use massive open online courses – MOOCs – to get an education equivalent to an MBA, at a fraction of the cost of a regular MBA degree. I don’t plan to receive any sort of credential for my studies, but I have sought to publicly demonstrate my efforts and my accomplishments, mainly through this website. Back when I started my No-Pay MBA, all certificates were free.

First Coursera and then edX introduced an identity-verified certificate for a fee, but these two major MOOC providers were still giving away honor-code certificates for free to anyone who completed all the requirements of their courses.

As the MOOC providers search for viable revenue models, the number of things you can pay for in the MOOC world has exploded. From subscription sites like Lynda, to micro-credentials like Udacity’s Nanodegrees and Coursera’s Specializations, the array of options is dizzying. None is as expensive as regular college credit, but fees for MOOCs now range from free with an option to pay $50 for a verified certificate (Coursera, edX), to upwards of $900 for a single course (NovoEd), to $200 per month for access to as many courses as you can handle (Udacity, Lynda). In the early days of massive open online courses you couldn’t pay for a course or a certificate if you wanted to. In my opinion, the proliferation of non-free options is a good thing; it is only by having sustainable business models that the MOOC platforms will be able to stay in existence and continue producing high-quality content.

What is your goal and how much can you afford? Free Online Courses - FutureLearn. Arizona State, edX to offer freshman year of college online. (Poets&Quants) — It’s been four years since Harvard Business School’s Clayton Christensen, the father of disruptive innovation theory, warned that technology would bring large-scale change to higher education.

Arizona State, edX to offer freshman year of college online

Universities have since been rolling out hundreds of online degree programs and thousands of free MOOCs (massive open online courses). But one of most potentially disruptive initiatives in education launched on Wednesday at Arizona State University and edX, the online learning non-profit founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Arizona State will allow students anywhere in the world to take their entire freshman year of courses online and then use the college credit earned to complete undergraduate studies at either its campus or any other university willing to accept those transfer credits.

The new offering is sure to raise eyebrows in academia, where change takes place slowly and with great reservation.

Quatre témoins de pratiques « améliorées » de formation et d’apprentissage vont se succéder pour un débat avec la salle. Moi, je ne dirai pas grand chose, car je considère que j’ai dit tout ce que j’ai à dire (pour le moment) sur le sujet, dans le livre blanc L’apprentissage augmenté que j’ai coordonné pour Thot, à partir des articles publiés sur le site depuis quelques années.

Le site web « Mooc Francophone » est un portail destiné aux cours en ligne ouverts à tous, en langue française. Il a pour vocation d’informer les visiteurs des offres disponibles et de leur donner les moyens de choisir un cours en ligne selon un ensemble de critères. The OpenupEd initiative was launched on April 25th 2013 in an online international press event. OpenupEd is a quality brand and partners are collaborating on those MOOCs that really focus on opening up education for all.
