Free online higher education. Yes, for YOU! For absolutely no cost, feel free to sign up for any number of courses you always wanted to take. Participate in the comfort of your own home, enroll in as many courses as your like. The professors are all world class.

MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course. For your own advancement and learning - the sky is the limit!

Imagine: now you can advance yourself, keep growing and learning, improving your resume, sharpening your knowledge.

Coursera is the nations largest producer of free online courses, with 2 million students having enrolled so far.

"I think by opening up education for free to everyone around the world, we're going to turn high quality education from a privilege to a basic human right, so that anyone, no matter their social, economic or family circumstances has access to the best education." says Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera.

The average point score of online students is even higher than traditional classroom, and teachers are learning more effective teaching skills.

This is revolutionizing higher education. It can also revolutionize YOU, indefinitely, and for free!
