The Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland, College Park announced partnerships this week with a Silicon Valley-based startup to offer new online-only certificates in the fields of data science and cybersecurity. Though universities in the state, including Hopkins, have previously embraced online-only for-credit classes, the "specialization certificates" are a new experiment. Open to anyone starting this spring, the classes will be taught by professors at the colleges through Coursera, an education company founded by Stanford University professors in 2011.

An outspoken English professor at the Naval Academy has been removed from the classroom following complaints from midshipmen, academy officials confirmed Monday. The academy would not elaborate on the nature of the complaints about Bruce Fleming, a popular professor who has often been critical of the academy. Academy spokesman Cmdr. John Schofield said it would be inappropriate to discuss the details of the complaints against Fleming, as an internal investigation is ongoing. "Professor Fleming deserves an expectation of privacy and a fundamental presumption of innocence in this matter, as do all midshipmen, staff and faculty at USNA who may be subject to any investigation," Schofield said.

Maryland, which has been quietly seething over its strongly held belief that Vanderbilt improperly made contact with quarterback Danny O'Brien, has filed a complaint against the Commodores football program. At the same time, Maryland told O'Brien, offensive lineman Max Garcia and linebacker Mario Rowson that they are free after all to transfer to Vanderbilt - or any other school - if they wish. Maryland said the three players were being given “a full release from the football program with no transfer restrictions.” The implication is that Maryland decided it didn't want the players - whose earlier release terms limited their transfer options - to be stuck in the middle of a dispute between the Terrapins and Vanderbilt coach James Franklin.
