In partnership with edX, Cornell University offers massive open online courses (MOOCs) to a global community of learners. The first four CornellX courses were launched in the spring of 2014. Plans to further online opportunities were announced by the Provost in the Fall of 2014. This website serves as a resource for Cornell faculty who are interested in teaching a MOOC.

An international group of higher education institutions gathered last week to explore the impacts of MOOCs on higher education.
The takeaway? Higher education is going digital, responding to the architecture of knowledge in a digital age, and MOOCs, while heavily criticized, have proven a much-needed catalyst for the development of progressive programs that respond to the changing world.
