Online learning worldwide with MOOCs

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are interactive online courses that are accessible around the world and free of charge. The Technical University of Munich (TUM) recognized the potential of these courses quite early: It is the first German University that develops and launches its owns MOOCs on very famous American platforms, edX and Coursera. The steadily growing offer of these courses has enriched teaching and learning in our University and gives the chance to an international and diverse audience to have access to high quality education.

Background: Learning scenarios & more

MOOCs in action: Our online courses are not intended to replace a regular degree program. However, they can enhance the university’s teaching repertoire. For example, they can be used to prepare for a course of study, to supplement lectures or to complete practical exercises (blended learning). They can also support continuing education.

Platform providers

To make MOOCs available to the public, the university established non-exclusive partnerships with the following renowned American platform providers:

  • Coursera: Stanford University spin-off with over 12 million users and more than 115 education partners worldwide.
  • edX: Founded as a cooperation between MIT, Harvard University & the University of California, Berkeley, edX is a non-profit organization. TUM is one of the universities specially chosen by edX to offer online courses.

Our university does not pass any personal data to the platform providers. If you take part in one of our MOOCs, please refer to the data protection guidelines in the terms and conditions of the providers.
