Rice University will offer five online courses free to people around the world as a new partner with the California-based enterprise Coursera. Coursera launched in April as the first education platform to host content from multiple world-renowned universities at one website. The Web-based courses include video lectures with frequent quizzes that reinforce concept retention and interactive assignments that test students’ understanding and build mastery of the subject matter.
Chemistry: Concept Development and Application will provide an introduction to fundamental chemical concepts of atomic and molecular structure, with an emphasis on the development of these concepts from experimental observations and scientific reasoning.


An Introduction to Interactive Computing with Python is designed to be a fun introduction to the basics of programming in Python. Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering: From Electrons to Bits will delve into the central ideas behind the representation of information by voltages and currents, the representation of analog signals like music and video by bits, and modern information communication systems, such as cellular telephone and computer networks.
Analytical Chemistry will provide a background in modern analytical chemistry with an emphasis on instrumentation. Applications of analytical chemistry in medicine, forensics and materials science will be presented. Nanotechnology: The Basics will provide a bird’s-eye view into a research area that spans disciplines from electrical engineering to biology.
These five courses will become available at different times during the coming academic year, and Rice may make additional courses available in the future. In addition to Rice, other schools that Coursera announced today as new course providers were California Institute of Technology, Duke University, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland, Georgia Tech, Johns Hopkins University, the University of California at San Francisco, University of Edinburgh in Scotland, University of Illinois, University of Toronto in Canada, University of Virginia and University of Washington. Coursera was founded in the fall of 2011 by Stanford computer science professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng. Rice and 11 other prestigious universities were announced July 17 as new partners with Coursera, which began with courses from just four schools. Beyond research, the first applications of nanotechnology are finding their way into commercial products and offering solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. The course is intended to help students develop an appreciation of the importance and foundation of super-small materials and devices.
They join Coursera’s original course providers: Princeton University, Stanford University, the University of Michigan and the University of Pennsylvania. Its mission is to change the world by educating millions of people via free online classes from top universities and professors.

Pitzer-Schlumberger Professor of Chemistry and professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, will teach the course.
Colvin is also teaching this course, along with Dan Mittleman, professor of electrical and computer engineering and interim faculty director of Rice University’s Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology.
Coursera has seen more than 650,000 students from 190 countries and more than 1.5 million course enrollments across its 43 courses on topics in the arts, computer sciences, mathematics, history, literature and other disciplines. Universities shouldn't be afraid to open up teaching and research, either in the UK or beyond.
