Coursera has been informed by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education that under Minnesota Statutes (136A.61 to 136A.71), a university cannot offer online courses to Minnesota residents unless the university has received authorization from the State of Minnesota to do so. If you are a resident of Minnesota, you agree that either (1) you will not take courses on Coursera, or (2) for each class that you take, the majority of work you do for the class will be done from outside the State of Minnesota."
not really relevant but relating to minnesota's politics -
question: I live in rochester and we're a "republican island" I'm not personally republican but evidently Rochester has a lot. There are still more democrats. What's it like in other parts of the state?
Education is a basic right of every individual and with traditional mode going far from the reach of a common man, online education should be freely available to fill the gap left by traditional education. I myself earnedÂ college credit for work experience by doing online course and that is paying me well!!!
