Coursera Embraces Netflix Model

This new subscription model for online learning could be a game-changer in online education. By financially incentivizing course completion, Coursera will likely boost the number of learners enrolling and completing programs in their courses and could be one step closer to realizing the original vision of MOOCS, once seen as poised to revolutionize the higher education industry. With an increasing emphasis on microcredentialing and badging as the way forward for higher education, this new move could position Coursera as a leader in that sector.
