The University of Washington will offer credit for some online courses offered through Coursera, an online course platform, but students will have to pay a fee to receive credit. A day after joining a prestigious national venture to offer free online courses, the University of Washington announced it also would offer credit for some of the courses — for a fee. That would make it the first university in the U.S. to provide credit using a Massive Open Online Course — MOOC — learning platform, UW officials said. The free courses are: scientific computing, taught by J. Nathan Kutz, and information security and risk management in context, taught by Barbara Endicott-Popovsky.
