Putting Coursera classes on your app? [#permalink] New post 05 Oct 2012, 05:38
So... I'm addicted to free education. I was wondering if I should add some of the free online, non credit courses I've taken to the additional education section of my apps. I'm assuming no, but worth checking. If not, do you think I should write something little about it in the optional essay??

Hi highwyre237,

Since these are non-credit courses that are not leading toward any degree, you do not need to add them to the education section of your application. You could possibly try to weave them into one of your other essays, showing how much you love to learn and how dedicated you are to continually growing and expanding your horizon.

Best of luck,
Shawn

Oh well...I was wondering about this too. I have taken up Operations Management course on coursera which is becoming very useful in my work so yes I am definitely going to write little about it somewhere in my app.
