Hi guys,

I'm extremely happy to join this lovely community. I was wondering if Coursera could create an online teaching master degree delivered entirely on the platform. Any suggestions?

Regards,

Aziz

Dear Aziz, Thank you for being in touch about your interest in Master's Degrees! Coursera is actively exploring a number of new degree programs, and we will of course let this community know when new degrees are available to take through our platform.

In the meantime, I recommend the University of Illinois' MasterTrack in Instructional Design which offers Master's level education courses with expert grading and live sessions with the faculty team. Check out the details here: https://www.coursera.org/mastertrack/instructional-design-illinois

Appreciate your excitement to dive into new topics and happy learning!

Sincerely,

Hi Alexandra,

Thanks for your response. The issue is that financial aid is not available in the MasterTrack certificates. A lot of learners can afford to pay the fees and even if they do, there are so many currency and online payment problems especially in under developed countries.

Hi, Aziz,

It will be really beneficial for people to find a master's degree in teaching. Though, being a teacher myself, I understand this is rather difficult to structure and organize one such a course in terms of the practical module and supervisions.

However, I am a believer in the progress and in the potential and "magical" abilities of Coursera to deal with the complexities. If they manage I will be lucky to opt for mentor in this course and why not as a facilitator.

I just gave a look to the Master's program of Illinois of which @Alexandra has shared and it seems just great.

Kind regards,

Svetlana

Check out the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign!

They have several MOOCS from their education graduate programs; The details of how you can transfer them into graduate credit with additional work and fees are in their introductions. For whatever reason, they never made them into a specialization, but if you want a MA in educational, then you can start today. Sorry that its not entirely on the platform.

They have 8 MOOCS that fit into their graduate degree and certificate programs; here's one:
