We support the development of lifelong learning opportunities for a wide variety of internal and external audiences, including:

  • Massive open online courses (MOOCs)

  • Teach-outs (short courses targeting specific, timely topics, whose learning outcomes are focused on immediate application and action)

  • Multi-MOOC sequential courses

  • On-demand training (self-paced, stand-alone training with little to no instructor involvement or peer interaction)

  • Cohort-based online courses

Courses may be hosted on Coursera, FutureLearn, or CoursePlus. A comparison of the course formats, including the platform(s) used for each, is in the following table.
