A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is a large-scale course that is taught online. So you are not tied to a location. You work with traditional study materials such as text, videos and cases. You interact with students and professionals worldwide through discussion platforms.
At CoE BBE you can currently follow six different MOOCs. You will learn more about the biobased economy and related themes. Students from other colleges and universities, professionals and students worldwide also participate. All courses are taught in English.
What are the benefits of a MOOC?
You learn to work together in a virtual environment and with participants from different countries. You develop skills and knowledge about the biobased economy that are useful during your internship, minor or within your work. Completing a MOOC can result in 1 ECTS and a certificate for some studies.
