Similar to other MOOC providers, Kadenze courses are free to take, but have a premium option: for $7/month students cant take as many courses as they like and gain the ability to submit and receive grades on assignments. Premium students also receive a verified statement of accomplishment for all the courses they complete. This statement can be accessed online and linked to via resumes and their Kadenze public profile.
Some of Kadeze’s courses also offer credit. Out of the 22 courses that have been announced 9 courses will be available for credit. This follows in the footsteps of other for-credit MOOC offerings, such as the ASU Freshman Global Academy.
