    Courserahas added a "teacher professional development" category to its collection of online and videotaped courses, allowing educators to participate according to their own schedule. The courses -- developed by Coursera in partnership with seven schools of education, plus educational institutions and museums -- will allow K-12 teachers and other individuals to take courses intended to help them develop understanding of topics, including the Common Core State Standards and blended learning. The courses are free, though a $30 to $99 fee may be charged for a completion certificate.
    The National Park Service Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) program lets teachers spend their summer learning in a U.S. National Park.
