It first paved the way as a free, online course open to all and now Dino 101 is being offered as an electronic textbook in app form. The University of Alberta will offer Dino 101: Dinosaur Paleobiology, starting Sept. 4, through Coursera. It’s the university’s first foray into the ever-expanding world of open online education. “We’re mindful of our students and the tremendous pressures on them with tuition and the additional costs of education such as textbooks,” said Jonathan Schaeffer, dean of the faculty of science. “We wanted to build something that was fun, engaging and at a price point that added real value to the student learning experience.”
