Anytime you can get free education from great people you should jump on it.

A free education is exactly what the U.S. needs right now.

Well, I agree with you to a certain extent. Why a free education is great, you also need a job in which to use that education and right now there are no jobs for graduates.

Elizabeth there are always jobs and if you are just starting your education research is key. Many students get degrees in fields they like not in the fields that are in demand. You must make a very conscious decision whether to chase your dreams or follow what the market is telling you to make money.

I looked over the Universities that they have signed up with and the list looks amazing. I think I can even get through a few courses if it is going to be free.

I think what they are doing is great. I do see down the line them having to restructure the programs once everyone catches on but as long as they can keep it fairly cheap it should be awesome.

If you are already in your profession and just need certificates this is great.

The current phase of business development is focused on user acquisition. Currently some of the courses are available for free. A list of ways to generate revenue includes verified certification fees (started in 2012 as Signature Track), specialization in areas of expertise.

Not to mention it is free. Education has become so expensive. It is nice to see someone trying to do something about that.

Free. That was all I needed to know. I am reading it will only be free for a short time so everyone should really go there and get some classes.

This look awesome! I'm always keen to learn new things, even if only for personal development. I wonder how long it's going to be free for?

I took one course at Coursera. I found it amazing and worth it to spend time learning in a new way and exploring new thoughts flying around you. The virtual learning which includes videos, assignments and discussions open the door for many interested people from many countries around the globe to get close and share knowledge. It was a new and exciting experience for me.
