Less Than 1% of ASU Global Freshman Academy Qualify to Advance - Carl Straumsheim, Inside Higher Ed

Only 323 of 34,086 learners are eligible to take advantage of Arizona State's MOOCs-for-credit initiative with edX. The university calls it a "positive first step." Less than 1 percent of the learners in the massive open online course partnership between Arizona State University and edX are eligible to earn credit for their work, according to enrollment numbers from the inaugural courses. The partnership, known as Global Freshman Academy, was announced this spring with great fanfare. University officials and fans of the effort said the new way of delivering education (in addition to traditional online and face-to-face options) might be a way to get new students excited about and enrolled in degree programs. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/12/21/323-learners-eligible-credit-moocs-arizona-state-u
