Curtin U’s MOOCs of the morning

Curtin U adds to its micromasters collection with a new Cisco-supported MOOC series on the Internet of Things (via edX). Iain Murray, Nazanin Mohhammadi, We-Juet Wong, Johannes Herrmann, Aloke Phatak, Valerie Maxville and Eleanor Sandry each teach some of the six units, which start at the end of the month and run to November. Individual units are free but the micromasters credential is available to completers for $599. This is a great deal for people who want to move from micro to complete Curtin electrical engineering masters – the six units are worth 25 per cent of the on-campus course. However a bachelors of engineering is a pre-req for qualifying.

“Verified learners” can also access Cisco Network Academy resources. But not if they are in Cuba or Iran, whose residents for barred from participating by US sanctions.
