Win-win-win? Students get free course materials to supplement their MOOCs, Chegg gets data on student usage of their ebooks, while Coursera expands resources for students.

From the article:

“Because the free versions of the books will be read through an e-reader, we’ll also get information about usage,” he said. “How students use the electronic text, how they use the material, will be tracked through software.”

Ms. Koller said the partnership could result in a more personalized, data-driven experience for instructors, too, allowing Coursera to improve courses in real time.
