New offering will allow Antioch University to reduce the cost of degree completion
Culver City, October 29, 2012– Antioch University is the first US institution to receive approval from Coursera to offer college credit for specified Coursera MOOCs (massive open online courses). Through this new partnership, Antioch University and the Antioch University Los Angeles campus can reduce student costs to complete a four-year degree and expand course offerings through free online courses offered by the highly respected universities that have partnered with Coursera. This course access will directly benefit learners that Antioch University serves and is a demonstration of Antioch University’s long commitment to innovation, experiential learning and student engagement through high-quality education.
For adult learners, the facilitated MOOC program helps meet the needs of those who have put off completing their college degree due to the high cost of higher education or the demands of work and family. For high school students, the program provides an opportunity to learn from exemplary faculty regardless of where the student lives and helps them get an early start on college through a combination of MOOC and Antioch University courses.
