Coursera Terms of Service (Amended)

Various authors, Coursera, Oct 18, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is funny and sad at the same time. From the Coursera license, just amended: "Coursera has been informed by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education that under Minnesota Statutes (136A.61 to 136A.71), a university cannot offer online courses to Minnesota residents unless the university has received authorization from the State of Minnesota to do so. If you are a resident of Minnesota, you agree that either (1) you will not take courses on Coursera, or (2) for each class that you take, the majority of work you do for the class will be done from outside the State of Minnesota." Via the Chronicle, which managed to get a whole column out of this.
