Universities are set to pilot a global credit transfer system that will allow students to use courses taken online to count towards their degrees. Six universities from Australia, Europe, Canada and the US are seeking to establish a new alliance in which each organisation’s massive open online courses (Moocs) are formally accredited by partner institutions. The proposed system – involving Delft University of Technology; ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich; the Australian National University; the University of Queensland; the University of British Columbia; and Boston University – is believed to be the first international initiative relating to online courses.
