MORGANTOWN (AP) – There’s no homework, no tuition and no tests. No credit, either. But now anyone with access to the web can become a college student.
This month, West Virginia University is launching a series of free online courses taught by professors. The experiment follows a national trend, and the courses are open to anyone anywhere.
The only requirements are an Internet connection and an eagerness to learn something new.
Monday’s class will focus on online relationships. It’s called “Love at First Like.’’
A class on cyberbullying follows Feb. 18, and the month wraps up with a course called “Understanding and Conquering Technology Overload” on Feb. 25.
