Good news for all MOOC students on iversity: From now on, participants can obtain ECTS credits in two of our courses – and more will follow. If you’re enrolled and pass the exam at the end of the course, the professors will issue a certificate that your home university will recognize – all over Europe!
Welcome to our first two ECTS-certified MOOCs: In mid-October 2013, Prof. Marc Opresnik, from Lübeck University of Applied Sciences (FH Lübeck), will launch his course “Fundamentals of Marketing”. Prof. Oliver Vornberger, an e-learning and computer science expert at the University of Osnabrück, will be giving a lecture on “Algorithms and Data Structures” in the summer term 2014.
For those who aren’t familiar with ECTS credit points: They were created as a part of the Bologna Process to make study achievements in Europe comparable. Other countries outside of Europe are increasingly adopting this system. iversity, in cooperation with its partner universities, is the first platform worldwide to offer ECTS credit points for university-level online courses.
The integration of online courses into traditional university teaching is gaining momentum, but that’s just the start. Prof. Oliver Vornberger comments: “What we are seeing now is only the beginning of a revolution that offers previously unimagined possibilities to improve university education online.”
