University of the People is not free - mostly free

This recent article "A Free Online University Tests the Waters" prompted a couple of people on the Open Educational Resources discussion forum ( to point out that "free" is a misnonmer. Students are now asked to pay a small fee to take the final exam in each course. That reminded me to make a small donation to the general scholarship fund. (Link available from the home page at ) Donating time is a help, but so is donating some money.
