Newcastle University partnered with FutureLearn in September 2013 to deliver three free online courses addressing the following opportunities:

  • develop one MOOC per faculty to build broad institutional capability.
  • clearly demonstrate institutional commitment to online and flexible course provision.
  • ensure continuity of expertise.
  • take maximum advantage of the FutureLearn partnership.
  • capitalise upon high levels of interest, momentum and enthusiasm from across all three Faculties and Central Services.
