Australian University Launches MOOC-Powered Programs

December 9, 2016
 
 

Deakin University in Australia will next year offer graduate degrees and certificate programs through FutureLearn, the online learning platform owned by the Open University in the U.K. The university on Friday announced it would launch four master's degrees and two certificate programs on the platform in disciplines such as cybersecurity, information technology and financial planning. Like many universities that are experimenting with delivering education through massive open online courses, Deakin will let students test the programs before committing to them. Students can enroll in free "taster" courses, which last only two weeks, and then decide whether they want to pay 2,600 Australian dollars (about $1,950) for the full course. FutureLearn expanded into for-credit courses in May.
