Open Online Learning

McMaster’s Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) initiative began with a partnership with online course provider Coursera in 2014. This partnership leverages the MacPherson Institute’s digital design and production capacity to encourage members of the campus community to rethink course curriculum in student-oriented ways. In 2017, one of our MOOCs, Mindshift, had a total of total of 87,504 enrolled learners across six continents and was voted the MOOC of the year by Class Central, a MOOC aggregator. The rapid growth of MOOCs has led to increased choice for learners and has encouraged us to shift our production and recruitment emphasis to skills-based courses.
