This MOOC is for credit, and students who obtain a Verified Certificate by submitting and authenticating at least 8 out of the 9 assignments with an overall mark of more than 60%, earn 3 Academic Units (AU) that can be directed towards either an Unrestricted Elective (UE) or General Elective (GE-STS) subject at NTU. The usual NTU examination procedure requires student identification through webcam plus keystroke patterning for each assignment submission with a no-tolerance policy towards cheating (https://www.coursera.org/about/terms/honorcode and http://www.ntu.edu.sg/SAO/Pages/HonourCode.aspx). Students who are found to cheat, tamper with or falsify grades, or collude on assignments will be denied credits. It is not necessary to be enrolled at NTU to be awarded 3 AU and once received the AU remain valid 3 years. Because this is a for-credit course students must join the Signature Track stream within the first 2 week add-drop period (up to 22 January 2016, 2359 hrs) in accordance with NTU rules.
