Online courses available for everyone to use.
MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are courses shared on the Internet that people can take inexpensively or free of charge. Participants from across the world carry out their studies through class videos, online tests, and other methods. Courses last a few weeks or months, and a certificate will be issued to those who pass the course by achieving certain grades.
In addition to edX and Coursera, provided in English, platforms that offer courses in other languages, such as JMOOC in Japan, have become available since 2012.
UTokyo is the first to launch courses on Coursera in Japan, starting with two in September 2013, and now offers 21 courses (10 on Coursera and 11 on edX) as of May 2023. (The University of Tokyo MOOC)
UTokyo shares online courses on two types of platforms: Coursera and edX. These MOOC platforms host over 30 million enrolled participants, enabling higher education to be provided on a global scale.
