In an effort to expand access to online learning, the University of North Texas is partnering with Coursera to offer non-credit courses in the massive open online format.
The institution plans to launch three to five MOOCs within the next year, according to Adam Fein, UNT vice president of digital strategy and innovation.
Created and taught by UNT faculty, the courses will be self-paced, allowing learners to engage on their own schedule.
Students can access the courses and course materials for free, and have the option to pay a fee to receive a Coursera Course Certificate upon completion.
The courses are also designed to help students prep for actual for-credit courses at UNT.
“Engaging with courses on the Coursera platform gives learners access to the subject matter but also a sense of ethos of being a UNT student and exposure to UNT faculty who care deeply about teaching students and quality learning outcomes,” noted Karen Bollinger, UNT assistant vice president of digital growth, in a statement.
“In support of our mission to provide access to education, our plan is to continue to explore options to give North Texas students and learners from around the globe flexible learning options and more ways to help them reach academic and career goals,” commented Fein.

Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
