$50 for what exactly /?
I was wondering the same thing.
Yes, my thoughts exactly: $50??
I hope that they give us $50 for receiving a certificate. =)
What are you guys talking about? Certificates? I don't see this.
How do you people find this stuff?
It was in the email, and in that yellow box :)
I didn't get the e-mail, but I saw the yellow box after I saw people on chat talking about it.
What yellow box? And yeah I didn't get an email either.
The yellow box that comes on the home-screen of any subject.
Oh the right-hand-side ^
Oh I ignored that yellow box. Okay. Thanks. You guys are so observant. I hope to learn from you guys.
I'm curious about these too. I also wonder if the team is familiar with Mozilla's OpenBadges project (I imagine they are) and if so, if there are any plans to integrate with that.
What is the OpenBadges project? Sounds most interesting
http://openbadges.org/en-US/ For more in-depth reading, here is a whitepaper they wrote about it: https://wiki.mozilla.org/images/5/59/OpenBadges-Working-Paper_012312.pdf
Yeah, I'd love it if they'd instead make use of Mozilla's open badges instead of us having to pay $50 for certificates - which I really don't get will come from.
I've read about this 'certificate' thing and I'm also curious to know more about it.
Folks, glad to see so many questions around this. Yes, we will be offering certificates related to OpenCourseWare courses. Since we will be performing assessments to go with that, we have to charge for that. Yes, we know about Mozilla OpenBadges and love them dearly. We are working with them as well. All good feedback. Keep it coming.
50 dollars; too much for Indians. :| Are we receiving them? I wish.
We may work something out. This is a concept check. And thanks for the feedback. We promise to rethink the $$.
What is iujy?
i cannot see any yellow box!! :(
Why not have an adjustment system for the fees? Like how the UoPeople will be charging differently between students depending on where they live...
Whats this all about ? "certificates" ......ummm....sounds really tempting !!!!!!!!!! :-)
