The University of Virginia is giving potential students a sneak peek of free online courses. The university has launched video previews of upcoming online learning classes offered through a partnership with Coursera. The non-credit courses are free and open to anyone with a computer and internet connection. Professors say enrollment has skyrocketed since the initiative was announced in mid-July. UVA professor Mitch Green said, “The enrollment for my course thus far, which doesn’t launch until March I, I think, 43,000 students from all over the world right now, which is kind of a mind-boggling number for us who teach 20 or 30 or at most 250 at a time.”
