Requirement c "must be able to identify cost of course in each mode of study offered". Arises from use case 1.1 (and 9.1, 2.1) an extension to use case 1, where the searcher is concerned about the cost of the course.

Discussion Cost thread

Proposal

Use the offers property inherited from Event to associate an Offer with each CourseInstance

Examples

Example 1. A free course

Based on Coursera Data Scientist's Toolbox Code example

[Course]
  name: The Data Scientist’s Toolbox
  hasCourseInstance [CourseInstance]:
    courseMode:	online
    offers [Offer]:
      price:    0

RDFA:
<body vocab="http://schema.org/">
<main typeof="Course">
  <h1 property="name">The Data Scientist's Toolbox</h1>
  <div rel="hasCourseInstance" typeof="CourseInstance">
    <meta property="courseMode" content="online" />
    <span rel="offers" typeOf="Offer">
      <meta property="price" content="0" />
    </span>           
  </div>
</main>
</body>

Example 2. A course whose cost depends on the mode of study

Based on PTC Basic Proof Reading Course Describing a self-paced distance learning course (no events) where the price depends on the mode of delivery Code example
