    education-portal.com is a free MOOC website with courses in the form of cartoons. They have courses to prepare you for CLEP, Dantes/DSST, Excelsior exams, etc. Well they say there going to start charging money for their courses. I wish them good luck and I appreciate the help they gave me to pass all of my CLEP exams. I want to see how this works out for them with all of the free MOOC's out there. I should have known when I got a survey from them asking how would I feel if they started charging moolah. I told them I'd drop em like a hot potato. Guess it don't matter anymore as I am done. It's a shame because their cartoon courses were great. You gotta love the greed in academia.

    So you want them to keep giving you something for nothing forever? You're right, there's definitely greed in academia....

    I don't see a problem with charging for study materials for exams that are worth college credit. I just prefer the flashcards offered by InstantCert over the boring videos offered by Education-Portal. When I do watch videos, I watch the ones on Learning.org because they're more entertaining. However, I will not pay for the MOOCs that don't lead to college credit.
