Free, Online Courses - Coursera

Hi all,

I recently came across two free courses on the Coursera website that may be of interest to you. 

Foundations for Teaching for Learning  -  This course runs from January 5, 2015 through February 25, 2015 and is a basic course on student learning, designed for individuals who teach but have no formal teacher education. 

e-Learning Ecologies  -  This course runs from January 19, 2015 through March 14, 2015 and provides a variety of approaches to learning and teaching through the use of e-learning and social web technologies.  Participants will explore various types of learning such as ubiquitous learning, active knowledge making, multimodal meaning, recursive feedback, collaborative intelligence, metacognition, and differentiated learning.

These are just a few of the 892 free, online courses offered by Coursera (
