University of Southampton MOOCs…coming soon!

You may have heard of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) open to anyone, anywhere in the world, to study online for free.

The University of Southampton will be launching its first MOOC in autumn 2013!

Courses will cover a range of topics under a theme and will require two to three hours of study per week. Participants can either choose to complete the whole programme, or elect to dip into particular topics of interest as and when time allows.

The University plans to launch its first few MOOCs in our leading subject areas including a major archaeological dig, an emerging discipline pioneered by our Electronics and Computer Science department, and courses drawing on our world leading expertise in the oceans.
