Trinidad / Coursera Online Learning

Trinidad / Coursera Online Learning | OER and OEP | Scoop.it

Coursera, one of the biggest online university course providers, is forming a partnership with the government to provide a network of online learning materials across the Caribbean country.

Minister of Tertiary Education, Fazal Karim, said it would raise the skills needed for the country to compete.

 

Mr Karim said it would open up a "world of opportunity" for Trinidad.

Coursera is a major provider of so-called Moocs - massive open online courses - that offer online university courses free. The US-based company now has almost eight million students registered.

But this project in Trinidad will be the first time that a Mooc system will have been designed for an entire country, described as a "national knowledge network".

Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’

Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’ | OER and OEP | Scoop.it
The August 2014 edition of the Australian-based journal, Distance Education (Vol.35, No. 2.), is devoted to new research on MOOCs. There is a guest editor, Kemi Jona, from Northwestern University, Illinois, as well as the regular editor, Som Naidu. The six articles in this edition are fascinating, both in terms of their content, but even more so in their diversity. There are also three commentaries, by Jon Baggaley, Gerhard Fischer and Tony Bates, who provides here a commentary on the six articles.
