ANN ARBOR, MICH (WXYZ) - The University of Michigan is expanding the use of free online courses.
The school announced that in the coming months at least seven of its professors will offer courses on various topics including finance, electronic voting, computer vision and fantasy and science fiction. The courses will be taught on a web-based platform from a business called Coursera.
UM is already offering the course Model Thinking through the program. University officials say more than 50,000 people have signed up for the class since it launched back in February.
Other schools have agreed to offer online courses through Coursera as well. You can get more information by logging on to http://www.coursera.org.
