Massive open online courses are forcing institutions to consider how to offer course credit and verify student identities. Coursera and other MOOCs are working with the American Council on Education (ACE), which is evaluating credit equivalency for these courses.

In 2011, StraighterLine became one of the first online institutions to be included in the ACE program.
