23. It seems to be their plan all along. It's $70-100 per course.

Coursera didn't seem to have a coherent business model but adopting ACE CREDIT (a scam in my opinion; ones knowledge application is not determined by 'credits') looks to be how they're going to get a lot of revenue, especially if they are able to offer all courses that exist.

https://www.coursera.org/signature/guidebook

$100 per course means you wind up spending about $5k per degree (ACE CREDIT determines how many credits a given course receives so I just rounded up, some courses are 1 credit while others are 4 credits or possibly more).
