FutureLearn Adds For-Credit MOOCs

May 27, 2016
 

FutureLearn, the online learning platform owned by the Open University in the U.K., now offers massive open online courses that award academic credit. In addition to the Open University, the University of Leeds is among the group of eight institutions developing the 12 for-credit MOOC sequences, which students can take to earn up to 30 credits. Students can start the MOOCs for free, but those seeking credits have to pay a fee starting at about $170 and in some cases complete an additional exam.
