In recent months, some colleges have made arrangements with the MOOC platforms they work with to let students and staff get free access to online certificates and microcredentials created by the universities. This year the University of Michigan launched Michigan Online, a portal that lists the dozens of MOOCs the university has developed, and offers links where current students, faculty members and alumni can get full access to the certificates for free. “We want students around campus to take those courses,” says James DeVaney, associate vice provost for academic innovation at the University of Michigan.
