Coursera Founder to Speak at UC Davis, and more on the UCD Foundation Matching

Davis Enterprise has this on Coursera: Online learning pioneer will speak Thursday

and this add'l info update (h/t @cnewf): Providers of Free MOOC's Now Charge Employers for Access to Student Data

there is this strangeness - this PR story that was advanced by UC Davis administration and it includes a self serving reference to administrators contributing their own dollars to a pledge matching plan, which seems somewhat inappropriate to include- 'let me call the press to tell them about our plan and that we administrators are contributing to it'-- is that really serving UC Davis? or is it self serving?

and it also has a correction...

it just reads -- odd.
