  1. Mr. Mark

    It was great until the very end when she said that this would “establish education as a fundamental human right.”

    With regard to education being a fundamental human right, NO. That would be a positive right that imposes a burden on society to provide goods and services to that individual simply because that individual exists. If she had said that Coursera establishes a template for providing education to people who could not otherwise obtain that education, then great – we’re in agreement. It’s just that I don’t think someone as smart as she is says something about establishing a fundamental human right unless she means to do exactly that. In that endeavor, I must disagree with her.

    However, the rest of the stuff was great. I signed up for few course and am looking forward to them.
