Times Higher Education - Open University launches British Mooc platform to rival US providers

Times Higher Education - Open University launches British Mooc platform to rival US providers | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

A UK-based platform for massive open online courses (Moocs) to rival established providers in the US has been launched by The Open University.

Futurelearn will carry courses from 12 UK institutions (see list), which will be available to students across the world free of charge.

It will follow in the footsteps of US providers including Coursera, edX and Udacity, which offer around 230 Moocs from around 40 mostly US-based institutions to more than 3 million students.

The new platform will operate as an independent company, majority owned by The Open University, although details of other investors have yet to be confirmed.

Digital dawn: open online learning is just beginning

Digital dawn: open online learning is just beginning | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Universities are traditionally seen as exclusive institutions for the few, not the many. But that is changing as a new wave of online courses throws open the doors of academia to all.

Led by world renowned American institutions like MIT and Harvard, this push to democratise learning is being taken up in Australia too.
