Coursera started with a mission to give the general public free access to courses from expensive colleges. Now it is selling all the course content developed for those free courses to colleges that want to use the materials in their own campus programs. The company, which was started by two Stanford University professors in 2012 and is now one of the most well-funded in the education industry, has always been highly picky about which colleges it works with to develop courses. But in a new effort announced Thursday, called Coursera for Campus, the company will begin selling access to its complete library of courseware to any college to use, at around $400 per student.
