Coursera for High School Students?


Is Coursera a High School Offering?

This is a quick introduction to a Google Poll I just sent out on Twitter.

In a couple days, I’m going to be meeting with a public school administrator who is inquiring about the feasibility of promoting Coursera courses to high school students.

I’d like to use the experience of a group of amazing educators (at all levels) who are engaged in online learning and solicit YOUR  experience and thoughtful comments on this question:

Should a public school district and/or high school (grades 9 – 12) promote (free, online) COURSERA (college) courses to their students? 

I’ll reserve my comments for a later post….right now, thank you for your time and input:


Thank you,

A long-time technology enthusiast who, in the mid 80's, thought the internet might be something that would catch-on, so he taught himself programming. That started him on a very satisfying road as a course developer, trainer, online teacher and elearning evangelist. Thirty years later, he fancies himself to be a "futurist" and "thought leader".... those thoughts are more about learning that doesn't involve expensive technology and a vision of the future that makes education more critical than ever!
