Which MOOC provider?

MOOClab (https://www.mooclab.club/threads/best-mooc-providers-and-their-pros-and-cons.572/) do an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the following MOOC platforms:

  • Coursera
  • eDX
  • Open2Study
  • Alison
  • Khan Academy

As always it depends on what you want from the course. Consider the following points:

  • For the widest range of subjects try Coursera, eDx or Alison
  • For science and technology subjects explore eDx first
  • Open2Study has a great user interface but is focused on the Australian market
  • Alison has a very wide range of courses but an annoying user interface that forces you to watch advertising.
  • Khan is a really good provider with a vast range of courses  but does not offer certification.
