The First Step in Entrepreneurship

That’s part of the title for a course of study I signed up for today. It’s being offered through the University of Maryland. This is my first course with Coursera. I’m an entrepreneur and the owner of my own business and I’m looking for opportunities to grow professionally. The course is being taught by Dr. James Green. I’ve taken graduate courses on line before so this is not an entirely new experience. However, this is the first time I’ve taken any courses at the University of Maryland. I’ve been following Coursera on Twitter for over a year and reading about them on educational technology blogs. Coursera is a Massive Online Open Course or MOOC and I’ve been interested in how MOOCs could shape our educational future.
