1. Elective courses in subject areas not offered at one’s school
2. Advanced courses for students who have completed the subject course sequence in their school.
3. Review courses for students who need more work to understand the material.
4. Courses for students who change schools and find that their previous coursework does not match up with their new school’s course sequence.
Missing from this list: the core, required courses of most schools. I wonder whether other, larger online course providers have success offering core courses that compete directly with schools’ core curriculum.
