StraighterLine: An Alternative to Coursera

There are plenty of online college course providers these days. As pioneers in offering affordable, 3- and 4- credit introductory college courses online, StraighterLine is happy that there is no longer any stigma to taking classes online.

But not all online course providers are the same. You need to do your homework.

If you're considering taking courses from Coursera, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do you want to choose from dozens and dozens of courses for college credit, or just a few?
  2. Do you want to transfer your courses automatically to an accredited college or university where you intend to get your degree?
  3. Do you want access to one-on-one tutoring if you need it?
  4. Do you think you’d benefit from a personal Student Advisor?
  5. When it’s time to transfer credits, do you want expert help with the process?
  6. Do you want as long as you need for courses with no fixed start or end dates?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have one more question for you:

Did you know with Coursera, the answers to those questions may not be the ones you want?

At StraighterLine, the answer are YES.

ACE Credit has evaluated and recommended our courses. More than 2,000 colleges and universities consider ACE CREDIT recommendations in determining the applicability to their course and degree programs.
