Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

A massive open online course (MOOC) is a free study programme designed to be studied online by large numbers of students. In addition to the usual course materials such as video lectures, reading material, coursework and tests, MOOCs provide forums that help students and tutors build an online community.

The University, in partnership with FutureLearn are creating outstanding Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Working closely with faculty staff, ILIaD learning designers and media producers produce high quality resources to support engaging and innovative learning activities for the thousands of learners on each course.
