University of Maryland will offer free online courses

Thursday - 9/20/2012, 2:00am  ET

Four of University of Maryland’s most popular courses will be available online this spring for free, the Baltimore Business Journal reported.

The university is the most recent to offer classes at no charge through Coursera, an online platform that aims to expand access to education by giving users free to access courses from well-known universities, including Stanford, Columbia, Princeton and Johns Hopkins.

Students who take the courses online can not earn credit from the university, but can receive a certificate from Coursera.
