Oakwood Launches First MOOC Developed by HBCU

September 17, 2014

Oakwood University will next month launch the first massive open online course developed by a historically black institution. “World Religions, an Occupational Approach,” which begins Oct. 27, will be hosted on Instructure's MOOC platform, Canvas Network. The university partnered with open educational resources support provider Lumen Learning and the Center for Excellence in Distance Learning, hosted at Wiley College, to produce the MOOC.

Alcorn State and Morgan State University in late 2012 announced plans for the first HBCU-developed MOOCs, but those plans appear not to have come to fruition.
