MOOCs form part of the University's commitment to knowledge exchange and community outreach. To date, we have received in excess of 3.8 million learner enrolments and issued more than 40,000 certificates.

They serve as online learning capacity building, providing academic teams with an online teaching experience and an opportunity to explore new ways of delivery and engagement online. One of the main reasons for signing up to MOOCs was for educational research purposes - MOOCs provided a new challenge to consider the ability to deliver high quality teaching and learning at a scale never before achievable.
