    Although I welcome the credit earning opportunities in principle, in practice there seems very little evidence that there is mass demand for this option. Colorado State University offered credit for Udacity courses for the price of a proctored exam ($89). Despite the saving on the normal $1,050 course fee they attracted exactly zero applications in a twelve month period.

    Credit transfer regularly scores well in surveys of current MOOC students but those responding seldom indicate an intention of taking up such possibilities themselves. I suspect that some of those supporting credit transfer do so with the intention of improving the credibility of the courses by association.
