Coursera begins to make money

Coursera, the increasingly popular provider of free online courses, is beginning to make money.

The Silicon Valley-based company brought in $220,000 in the first quarter after it started charging for verified completion certificates, its co-founders said. The company also receives revenue from an Amazon.com affiliates program if users buy books suggested by professors.

“It’s the beginning of revenue,” said a Coursera co-founder, Daphne Koller.
