For more than a year, Emory has partnered with Coursera to offer free, not-for-credit, massive open online courses, or MOOCs. This type of online education has been popular — with some 241,000 students from around the world registering for Emory’s Coursera courses.

This fall Emory expands its Coursera presence once more by rolling out several new courses, including a course on Childbirth: A Global Perspective, by School of Nursing Professor Lynn Sibley, set to start October 1.
