MOOC RI for credits (ECTS)

Currently TU Delft aims at setting up an alliance with several international partners, like the University of Queensland, the University of British Columbia, EPFL, Rice University and Australian National University. Their shared ambition is to recognize and integrate MOOCs in (formal) campus education. This would mean that in the future any student registered at one of the partner universities can take any MOOC offered by these universities and be awarded formal Credits for it.

To quote Anka Mulder, Vice-President for Education & Operations at TU Delft,  : offering credits for MOOCs is a big step for brick and mortar universities.”

For the MOOC RI we have expressed our interest to participate in this pilot which be launched end of 2016. In the meantime, a lot of practical issues – like proctored exams, re-sits  and obtaining formal recognition by the examination boards-  have to be resolved.
