Kennesaw State University, a doctoral research institution, recently designated "R3" in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Learning, is offering courses through the University System of Georgia - Coursera U.S. State Institution Partnership.
With over 17 million enrollments, and students representing 190 countries, Coursera is one of the leading platform providers for MOOCs.
“The new Coursera partnership will allow participating systems and institutions to share knowledge and resources to shape curriculum, adapt existing MOOC content, and experiment with “blended learning” which combines online video lectures and content with active, in-person classroom engagement.
“As our campuses work to increase the percentage of Georgians with some level of college completion, new and flexible academic offerings such as MOOCs will play an important, but not the only, role in this effort,” said Davis. “This resource partnership complements on-going completion initiatives at many of our institutions that are being led by our world class faculty and staff.”
In December of 2015, the University System of Georgia was offered "Full Partnership" status with Coursera.
