Studica is working on some very interesting things in 2015. We know that with the New Year many people make their resolutions and hope for the best in the upcoming months. But rather than cut down on the sweets or make trips to the gym, why not try to learn something new? This year Studica is working with leading MOOC providers Coursera and EdX in order to bring the classroom to you.
MOOCs stands for Massive Open Online Courses. It is a fun acronym, but why should it matter to you, right? Well for one thing, MOOCs offer quality education for the price of material and accredited testing. In 2014, Georgia Tech launched a complete MOOC master’s program in computer science that cost less than $7,000 . Compared to your traditional master’s program expenses, this seems like a steal.
How MOOC Programs and Studica Work Together
Most MOOC programs tend to offer free learning. There is no fee to take a course, simply find a subject you’re interested in and sign up. Payment is only required if you wish to receive a degree or certification at the end of the course. Also, some courses may require additional material to help students learn the concepts and create a hands-on approach to learning. That’s where Studica comes in.
We are proud to offer the academic materials – including NI myDAQ and National Instruments Accessories – required for several of these online courses. Now, you can benefit from an online classroom environment and receive incredible academic discounts on products that will support your achievements. Take a look at the MOOCs we are currently supporting.
