State universities in California, looking for creative ways to reduce education costs at a time of budget stress, are turning to massive open online courses (MOOCs) to offer low-cost options for students. San Jose State University (SJSU) today announced a pilot project with Udacity, a for-profit provider MOOCs, to create three introductory math classes. The courses will be free online, but students who want credit from SJSU will be able to take them for just $150, far less than the $450 to $750 that students typically pay for a for-credit course.
