Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

A MOOC is a short course which is delivered online and is open to anyone around the world.

The University of Nottingham delivers MOOCs through the FutureLearn platform.

Permission must be gained for all third-party materials that are included in a MOOC. It is beneficial to use creative commons licenced resources when building a MOOC as permission to use the materials has already been granted under the conditions of the licence.

Advice on how to create a MOOC and support with copyright clearance for MOOCs is provided by the MOOC project team once a MOOC has been prioritised by the Online Learning Steering Group.

MOOC course proposal ideas should first be discussed with Sarah Stubbings (Online Learning Manager).
