SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - California Gov. Jerry Brown is set to speak at a San Jose State University event where campus officials plan to announce a partnership with a Silicon Valley company to offer online classes for credit.
University officials said Tuesday that the pilot program with three classes will be available to San Jose State and non-San Jose State students starting this month.
They say it will be the first time that a broad and diverse range of students, not just matriculated students, will have access to online college classes for credit from an accredited university at a price of $150 per course.
A formal announcement with Brown is set for 10 a.m.
The entry-level mathematics, college algebra and elementary statistics classes will have 100 students each. The university is partnering with Udacity Inc.
