It has become a truism that MOOCs aren’t always open anymore. Increasingly, courses pegged as massive, open and online are actually intended for use in for-credit programs that help people earn partial degrees (as long as they’re enrolled in a university program and pay tuition). Sometimes these courses can’t even be audited by people who are interested in the subject but don’t necessarily want the credit or fees.¬†Class Central recently made a list of all the courses it could locate that are part of for-credit programs and are still free to access. There are 370 of them, according to the company, which operates an online MOOC search engine and curates a MOOC catalog. According to publisher Dhawal Shah, the search found offerings from 49 different universities, with subjects “spanning technology, business, the arts and engineering.”
