Tomorrow is a big day for the University of Amsterdam. It’s embracing the MOOC trend by launching its first official massive open online course.
UvA will be the first university in the world to offer the MOOC “Introduction to Communication Science.” More than 2,000 people have enrolled so far, and this is the first MOOC to be offered in the Netherlands. The free English-language course lasts eight weeks and will deliver video lectures on every aspect of communication, from history and theory to the influence of the media on society.
