One startup is finding MOOC success in the Gulf with Arabic-language training course for corporates.
Ms Jan O’Sullivan T.D., Minister for Education and Skills today launched a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) called “21st Century Learning Design” which will be used by teachers across the globe to help support the objective of bringing more technology skills into the classroom.
Massive open online course platform Coursera is removing the option to complete some of the courses offered on its platform for free. Coursera has previously offered a free track and a paid track that awards an identity-verified certificate, but as of last week, learners will have to pay a fee in some courses to have their assignments graded. Learners in those courses who choose not to pay can still browse the course materials, including discussions and assignments.
