LEARNING WITHOUT BOUNDARIES: MOOCs

Reaching Out to the World

Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is an online course that encourages student participation via easy web navigation and multimedia content. It helps  students to learn in ways that work best for them and the opportunity to interact with the academic and content experts from all over the world in a more personalised manner.

Taylor’s MOOCs are instructor-guided courses and focuses on concise, targeted video content – with short videos rather than full-length lectures for students to wade through at their own pace, as well as the opportunity to explore other forms of learning resources. It also uses automated assessments and activities to check students‘ understanding as they work through the content.

We hope to leverage on this great platform to expand the University’s role in changing the higher education landscape in Malaysia.
