We definitely plan to offer this course for free at least a couple of more times over the summer. Beyond that it’s unclear what will happen–it’s no secret that Coursera is a for-profit company, and we don’t know how long they will make courses available for free. However, we’re excited enough about this that we will make sure to find some way to keep getting the material out there, and if we can do so for free, we will. We’ll even get a chance to meet a few of the online students in person—they formed a study group that meets at a Starbucks close to UC Berkeley!
