Taking KI teaching and education worldwide
The Board of Higher Education at Karolinska Institutet has be funding two new Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) yearly since 2018, with up to 500 000 kronor available per approved online course. The Review Committee has been soliciting proposals for new MOOC courses annually.
KIx: edX at Karolinska Institutet
In June 2013 Karolinska Institutet became part of the edX consortium and can now be seen as KIx at edX.org. In autumn 2014 Karolinska Institutet launched Sweden’s first Massive Open Online Courses which had more than 50.000 participants registered. As of this year 2020, we have launched in total 12 MOOC courses on the edX platform with over 140.000 enrolled participants.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic this year we have decided to take a pause from producing new MOOC courses in order to restructure our proposal and production process. This restructuring will lead to a more streamlined process for everyone involved.
