    Lancaster enters the world of MOOCs

    Yesterday I attended the launch of FutureLearn, the new UK provider of Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs and a challenger to the USA-dominated provision from Coursera and EdX. FutureLearn is owned by the Open University but currently brings together over 20 university partners who will provide courses on their platform. Those partners include the best and brightest of UK universities including Lancaster.
