Six MOOCs are available from iversity at launch, with its initial curriculum spanning 24 courses in total (15 of which are in English, with the rest in German). The other courses will start at later dates this year and on into 2014. iversity originally planned to finance 10 MOOCs at launch. Riecke said it’s been able to co-finance “some” of the additional 14 in its curriculum out of existing budgets, but the “bulk of financing” came from the universities and individual professors who are offering the course content. The MOOCs are being provided by a range of continental European universities, including Hamburg University and the University of Osnabrück, and individual professors from Europe and the U.S.
