The American Council on Education has announced that five Coursera MOOC courses have earned credit recommendations. Two of the courses – Mohamed Noor’s “Introduction to Genetics and Evolution” and Roger Barr’s “Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach” – are part of Duke’s Coursera effort.
The ACE’s process includes faculty reviewers who consider creditworthiness, content, pedagogical approaches, technical issues, student-faculty interaction and security of assessments. Duke’s two courses have earned credit recommendations from ACE.
