MOOCs for Credit: Introducing MOOC2Degree from Academic Partnerships
At Academic Partnerships, we believe that education should be accessible to any qualified individual with the desire to receive a college degree. That’s why we’re working with our partner universities to help potential students take their first step towards entering into an accredited online program.
The MOOC2Degree Program
MOOC2Degree turns the first course of an accredited program into a MOOC — a fully open, free course — in which students participate to try out the online program platform. If a student chooses to continue through the program, the participating university will apply earned MOOC credits to the student’s degree. Many AP partners have joined the MOOC2Degree program and are excited to offer this unique opportunity to potential students. See what our partners are saying about their involvement in MOOC2Degree:
