The MOOC Project

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have increased in popularity over the past ten years. Most of the world’s leading higher education institutions have established partnerships with the major MOOC providers to deliver courses, micro-credentials and degree programmes via their online platforms. Institutions have long recognized the value of such partnerships in generating revenue, recruiting international students, as well as enhancing global visibility. As a high-ranking global institution, The UWI is seeking to establish partnerships with the leading MOOC providers to advance its Global Online initiative.

The UWI MOOC project is an evolving initiative, led by the OOL, aimed at exploring opportunities for MOOC partnerships and working with faculty and other stakeholders across The UWI to harness the potential of MOOCs to support The UWI’s global agenda.  For further information, please contact the OOL at
