Op-Ed: Technology can revolutionise university access | Daily Maverick

This is supposed to the era of the “massive open online course”, but universities and teachers are being slow to embrace this opportunity to make university learning available to a much wider audience. By KYLE ROTHER.

Launch of MOOCs-for-Refugees Program

The U.S. Department of State and massive open online course provider Coursera are partnering to launch Coursera for Refugees, a program to offer career training to displaced people around the world. The program will focus on nonprofits that help refugees, which will be able to apply for fee waivers to access the Coursera course catalog.

The State Department will help Coursera find organizations that can host in-person cohorts of refugees enrolled in the same MOOC.
