The Coursera platform can be a useful part of your overall learning content portfolio if utilized correctly. It's fantastic for asynchronous courses that don't necessarily need a dedicated faculty member (though I'd highly recommend at least having some discussion moderators/student workers) and for offering MOOCs. The ability for the learners to contribute translations really makes it ideal for the international learning community - I am always amazed to see a course we launched with 2-3 languages to quickly have 10-12 more added. This feature really helps expand the audience reach and Coursera has such a large following already that it can grow seemingly overnight.

Renaissance myON® News, Powered by News-O-Matic

I think this is a great tool for middle school students, as they are starting to become aware of the world around them and topics that are going on in our country and world. In this digital age, students need to learn the difference between "fake news" and unbiased news reports. The interactive features, as well as letting them read articles based off their interests, is perfect for middle school aged children.

Pros

Coursera

  • Interaction: the student learns by doing. For programming courses, this means programming!
  • Assessments: the courses I'd taken ask students to grade each others work with a rubric. This is hugely effective and permits tests and quizzes to be other than multiple choice.
  • Creativity and enthusiasm of the instructors. Some of the approaches demonstrated real out-of-the-box thinking by the instructors. For example, the Rice Python course was a self-contained website requiring no installation of IDE on one's computer, and the final project was a working version of Asteroids.
  • Low cost of entry: most of the course I enrolled in were free, with an optional fee for certifications. This really gives people the freedom to explore learning. It's almost like a Public Library of Learning.
  • Coursera forces a weekly discipline on the user with lectures and assignments and this really motivates one to put in the effort.

Cons

Coursera

  • Some of the courses (very few) have some old information (more than 2 years), and in some areas like technology the information has to be very new and updated.
  • Some professors or people doing videos are not good in front of the camera, they should train their people a little bit more for those things.

Renaissance has always had a great online help section with videos and articles. They also have an online community for users to discuss ways to use their products. They have free webinars available to users as well. Most one-on-one learning sessions are done by our instructional facilitators in our county

Alternatives Considered

Coursera

I think Coursera has the best overall interface. I think you will find that different platforms go in different directions, and have different specialities. For the most part the differences are more in the types of courses they offer than one being particularly better than the other, so it comes down to content for me.

I like myON News more than any other product due to the variety of articles along with providing different Lexile levels. The Comprehension questions are also a great added feature. This is the complete package website, you have everything you need in one site. Students do not have to go to multiple websites to complete the activities.
