And here to help

Universities without a bunch of on-line backend are blithely announcing courses for students who can’t make it for first semester.  Open Learning sees an opportunity

The Sydney-based company says its “scalable cloud learning platform” is available in the PRC and can deliver courses on-line.  It claims 10 470 users to date in China, mainly in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Chongqing.

 Open Learning delivers MOOCs and short pay-to-view courses from around 50 HE providers including UNE, UNSW, UTS, Western Sydney U, Charles Sturt U, and Uni Newcastle.
