CourseTalk is a place for students to share their experiences with MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and discover new courses they'll love. We list the amazing free college-level courses listed on platforms such as Udacity, Coursera, and edX.
A Vision for Higher Ed
While CourseTalk is not educating directly we do support the broader effort by many to transform education for the better using internet technologies. Here's what we support and think is possible: ...
- Making a world class education available to anyone anywhere for free.
- Using data analysis and course iteration to create a future where we can all learn faster, learn smarter, and have more fun while doing it.
- To create viable alternatives to a four year college degree and thereby open the door to innovations in credentialing, job preparation, and job matching.

Online Edu Degrees Now Dwarf Traditional Universities http://tcrn.ch/QN7wdF Online Education Degrees Now Dwarf Traditional Universities
Education degrees earned at online universities now dwarf those of traditional universities.
USA Today analyzed recent Department of Education data and found that online education behemoth, the University of Phoenix, awarded more than twice as many education degrees as its closest traditional competitor, Arizona State University (5,976 vs. 2,075).
the convenience factor for online education is a major appeal. Meredith Curley, dean of the University of Phoenix College of Education, said that the average age of the student is 33, and many come back after starting families.
Do you think it makes a difference whether a teacher was trained online or at a traditional college?
