Through a partnership with online platform Coursera, roughly 1.6 million students from more than 162 countries have enrolled in Penn’s Open Learning courses. The University has featured 24 unique courses, 36 total sessions, and has 19 courses in the pipeline. Deirdre Woods, interim executive director of the Open Learning Initiative, says six of Penn’s 12 schools have delivered one or more Coursera courses, and four more schools will be delivering courses in the next six to 12 months. “We have courses all across Penn that really demonstrate Penn’s depth and breadth,” she says. As Penn moves into its second year of open learning, Woods says the University is analyzing the data from its MOOCs to understand trends in learning, and thinking about ways to expand other online offerings going forward. “Clearly we have a wealth of expertise and content that might be used in other formats,” she says.
