Coursera, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provider, today debuted a free iPhone app designed to let students access course content from their smartphones. Coursera seeks to extend its offerings to meet demand and, hopefully, generate more revenue. GigaOm notes that the new mobile offering fills a void, as third-party apps previously charged students to access MOOC content. The new app, GigaOm adds, “is more of a bare-bones version of [Coursera’s] browser offerings.”
