Free courses for your high school student


My 17 year-old is taking a MOOC (massive open online course) at Coursera.org, and I am giving you an update on his progress. This is week 8, and he enjoys the class, the reading assignments and the writing assignments. He looks forward to peer reviews, writing them and reading those he receives. He is going to sign up for another class, and I have signed up for one too. Try one for yourself, or register for the same one as your son/daughter. Let me know what you think about it.

All the courses at Coursera are free, all taught on the campus of prestigious colleges, such as Princeton, Stanford and more. They have a start date and end date, homework, and most have a certificate of completion.  Read more here....
