# Coursera Calculus versus Distance Calculus

Coursera is a consortium of various universities (University of Pennsylvania, University of Sydney, et al) where their various online course offerings are presented together in one central location for students to find courses to take online.One Calculus I course from Coursera is from University of Pennsylvania - it is a set of lectures from one of their professors, which receives great reviews as shown on that page.

Can you get academic credits for this Coursera Calculus I ? It is free - definitely cheaper than Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University $1732 tuition fee.

This question is quite simply: no. But they mention this big "maybe"

As far as we can tell, you cannot earn real, transferable academic credits by taking an Coursera Calculus course.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: Amazing professor, extremely helpful and graded assignments quickly. To any Cornellians out there, this is the Calculus Course to take in Summer to fulfill your reqs! I would definitely take more Calculus Classes this way in the future!

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II

Review: I did not enjoy Calculus I at my school. I retook Calculus I, and then Calculus II, over the summer via Distance Calculus and it was awesome. I started my sophomore year back on track and ready for my physics classes. I struggled with the MathLive software but I guess it was alright.

Review by: Andris H.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

Review: I found out from my MBA program that I needed to finish calculus before starting the MBA. They told me 3 weeks before term started! I was able to finish Applied Calculus from Distance Calculus. Definitely a great class. Thanks Distance Calculus!
