LMU Munich explores new forms of collaborative learning – by making use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Via Coursera, a leading platform for online education, LMU will soon make stimulating courses in subjects that are of wide contemporary relevance available on the internet. Designed and taught by LMU faculty members, the courses may be accessed by anyone anywhere, at no charge and without having to meet any special entrance requirements. The MOOCs offered by LMU generally consist of video lectures, machine-graded quizzes, collaborative online learning forums, reading lists and seminar assignments. With this combination of inputs, members of the virtual audience can gain a thorough understanding of their chosen subject.
