Thank you for your post. The recorded lectures and supporting material will be available perpetually after the course is over, so they can be used to learn the subject at any time. Given the resources needed to offer the course live, I believe it will not be offered live again.

We made a conscious decision not to do certification. We consider the goal of taking the online course not to be "credit." Rather, it is to learn the material on one's own for those who would otherwise not have access to the course lectures and material.
