A University's Offer of Credit for a MOOC Gets No Takers

A University's Offer of Credit for a MOOC Gets No Takers | Innovations in e-Learning | Scoop.it
Colorado State University-Global Campus made the $89 offer but may have to adjust its thinking, officials say.
k3hamilton's insight:

I'd say it's about perception. If you have already done something for free, why would you pay for it after.?There would have to be really strong motivation. They might be better to allow registration in a MOOC for some small nominal fee and then afterward charge a fee for the test and credit.
