LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—Students needing some help preparing for college math classes can take advantage of UW-La Crosse’s Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC for short.

It’s a free course open to anyone in the world.

“You can take it for a variety of reasons,” Bob Hoar, Associate Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs said.  “Some are high school students preparing for college. Some are in college but haven’t taken a math class yet, others are home school kids.”

You can work on the class whenever you feel like it.
