KAIST Coursera

KAIST-Coursera Partnership and Launching

In the fall of 2013, KAIST joined Coursera*, which allows us to offer massive open online courses (MOOCs)* using the sophisticated Coursera platform. KAIST is now poised for further innovation in online teaching and learning. Beginning 2014, KAIST will offer free online courses through the Coursera website.

- Our partnership with Coursera will enable us to explore innovative ways of teaching and to experiment with new ideas.
  By developing courses for Coursera's platform, we expect innovation in online teaching and learning to progress such as
   pedagogical techniques and student engagement, especially in large enrollment courses. Through this partnership,
  we can also enhance our current educational initiative, Education 3.0, on and beyond our campus.

- This partnership can provide us with an opportunity to expand our reach around the world and to increase access
  to the work and ideas of outstanding KAIST faculty. As a leading institute in the science and technology field,
  we anticipate unprecedented campus visibility created by free and open access to MOOCs.

- We believe this is a worthy experiment and an opportunity to both learn and contribute and thus solicit
  preeminent faculty participation.
