The University System of Georgia and big university systems in nine other states have announced a joint partnership with a large educational technology company to offer massive open online courses, or MOOCs.


“In time, the Georgia efforts will serve as a clearinghouse of high quality, affordable, complementary credit pathways developed by USG institutions and utilizing MOOC and MOOC-like resources,” according to Thursday’s university system announcement.

"Those pathways might include core courses, high-demand associate degree completion options, master’s and undergraduate degree programs, and support courses, according to the announcement."
