UCT MOOC on top 10 list worldwide
UCT’s MOOC ‘What is a mind?’ has made it onto a list of the top 10 MOOCs to have been offered in 2015. (MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course, and offers unlimited, free participation over the internet to people all over the world.)
‘What is a mind?’ was offered by neuropsychologist Professor Mark Solms and explored “the most pertinent scientific and philosophical concepts for understanding our own minds”.
The top 10 listing comes from Class Central, which aggregates information about MOOCs. Class Central said they used thousands of reviews written by users to compile their list.
The UCT course was judged from among 2 200 MOOCs presented for the first time in 2015. It ranked sixth, one of only three outside the United States to make it onto the list.
