Reader comment on: Minnesota Bans Coursera
Submitted by Lyle (United States), Oct 20, 2012 22:31
It should be noted that the courses are offered by actual institutions of higher learning not Coursera. It should be noted that Mn has had rules for a large number of years that an institution may not offer classes in the state without filing and paying the state its needed fees. This came about because there used to be fly by night education firms that the state wanted to regulate. So the point was that changes in the environment have snared UC Irvine, Stanford and other institutions. It used to be that institutions did not offer courses out of state typically because it was far too uneconomic. The spokesman suggests that the legislature will be asked to fix the issue.
