Coursera FAQ


  1. Some of the courses on the site are designed to be used for credit. Are we assigning credit hours for those courses? Under what process? Who would invite the student to those courses, their advisor? And the student then gets free USAO elective hours, since we aren’t charging tuition for Coursera license use?
  2. When a faculty member wants to use Coursera content for a class assignment, can they integrate that with Canvas? If so, how?
  3. When a faculty member assigns Coursera content, do they need to report that to someone so we know how many licenses will be in use during specific times?
  4. What if a student (or staff/faculty member/alum) wants to take something like the Google certification program? Who invites them? Does that need to be approved by someone?
