European MOOCs Scoreboard
The aim of this scoreboard is to highlight the huge potential that European institutions have in the world of MOOCs and to help visualize this potential by compiling the existing European-provided MOOCs available on different open websites.
European MOOCs are those provided by European institutions, regardless of the platform that hosts them. Each and every MOOC provider was contacted individually to get the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available. Many of the MOOCs accounted for in the scoreboard are also listed in the MOOCs aggregator on this website. Efforts are underway to make the aggregator even more comprehensive and include every MOOC from the scoreboard.
The world of MOOCs is dynamic and growing, and Open Education Europa aims to be the leading online resource for open education innovation. Anyone with additional sources or updates is welcome to contribute to the MOOC scoreboard by contacting us.
Sources of information
The MOOCs included in these infographics were listed on the websites cited below. The courses had varying statuses: some were starting soon, some were ongoing, and a few were listed as finished, but had made their resources available for self-study. While most of the information concerns MOOCs from European institutions, additional research on non-EU MOOCs was conducted so as to provide a reliable basis for comparison.
