In its ongoing effort to make MOOCs more and more like traditional education, Coursera has launched 'mentor-guided courses' for the cost of $US 248. As Class Central comments, "Udacity had launched coaching way back in September 2013, but that program later morphed into Nanodegrees. For the last two years, Udacity has focused on scaling 1:1 feedback and coaching while Coursera has focused on scaling content. Now, in 2016, it looks like their positions are reversed."
