I want to develop online courses


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.

  • UTokyo shares online courses on two types of platforms: Coursera and edX.
  • These courses have over 30 million registered participants.
  • We offer courses free of charge across a wide range of fields with the aim of education and learning.
