UMD Debuts Coursera 'MOOC' Offerings


The University of Maryland plans to offer four popular courses free this spring via Coursera- the international platform that hosts "MOOCs," massive open online courses.

UMD is joining the six-month old consortium, which until now has had 16 other American Association of Universities members and world class international institutions. Negotiations with Coursera began last July.

The first offerings include an eclectic mix intended to appeal to a diverse international audience:

  • Developing Innovative Ideas for Real Companies (James V. Green, Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute)
  • Women and the Civil Rights Movement (Elsa Barkley Brown, College of Arts and Humanities)
  • Exploring Quantum Physics (Charles Clark and Victor Galitski, College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences)
  • Software Defined Networking (Nick Feamster, College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences)
