Learning from ‘free online courses’ (MOOCs)

College and university education is changing: have you joined the revolution? Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are now available to be studied at a distance, for free or extremely low cost. Famous examples include edX, MIT’s Opencourseware, Coursera, The Saylor Foundation, Open2study and FutureLearn, and are often supported by prestigious universities such as Harvard, MIT and Warwick. The problem has been that most of these courses are typically not accredited, so do not have the status and impact of a fully recognised degree.

Now, the Centre for Work Related Studies (CWRS) at the award-winning University of Chester in the United Kingdom has created a unique opportunity for professionals who have generated substantial amounts of learning from these free online courses. These professionals can now potentially have their learning accredited up to 66% of a fully recognised UK degree.
