IEEE Collaborates With edX to Offer MOOCs
IEEE partnered with edX to create a series of global continuing education courses and massive open online courses (MOOCs). As they become available, the courses will be announced on IEEE’s edX website. The first one, ISSCC Previews: Circuit and System Insights, is sponsored by the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). It is now accepting registrations in advance of its launch on Dec. 1, 2014.
Other IEEE organizations will develop courses, including IEEE Internet of Things, IEEE Smart Cities, and the IEEE Educational Activities Board. Many of them will be free and open to the public, but students will often be able to purchase a certificate upon completion. Additionally, students will be able to earn continuing education units and professional development hours from the courses.
