In a move that could hasten the acceptance of cheap online degrees the University of Queensland and the Australian National University are considering giving academic credit for massive open online courses (MOOCs). The two universities, both charter members of US online course provider edX, are discussing an international alliance with other universities in which each of them will offer credit for MOOC courses originating with other group members. At least four overseas universities have been in discussions about the alliance with the University of Queensland and ANU. These are Delft University of Technology in Holland, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, the University of British Columbia and Boston University.
