Massive open online course platform Coursera is removing the option to complete some of the courses offered on its platform for free. Coursera has previously offered a free track and a paid track that awards an identity-verified certificate, but as of last week, learners will have to pay a fee in some courses to have their assignments graded. Learners in those courses who choose not to pay can still browse the course materials, including discussions and assignments. “We are on a mission to change the world by providing universal access to the best learning experience,” Coursera said in a┬áblog post. “To do this, we also need to have a business model that supports our platform, our partners, our content and everything we do for learners.
