For the pilot courses, professors create the content — lectures, quizzes, online assignments and discussions — and Coursera provides the audience and infrastructure. Many courses are only provided online, but Adelman’s and a few others are also offered to Princeton University students who attend in person. The online students receive no official credit, but Coursera and other similar companies let anyone with an internet connection access a top-notch education. Gideon Rosen, a philosophy professor and chair of a committee on online learning, said that faculty members feel there’s “a genuine moral reason to make as much pedagogy as possible available to a wider audience.”
