“Antarctica Online” will be the first edX course produced by Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, which has just joined MIT’s and Harvard University’s founded educational platform. This course will showcase materials and lectures that were filmed in Antarctica by two faculty professors, Dr Rebecca Priestley and Dr Cliff Atkins.
As part of its partnership with edX, Victoria will deliver eight free MOOCs over the next three years. These courses will run for either four or eight weeks.
In addition, this university will launch a Micro-Master’s course, several SPOCs (Small Private Online Course), and other formats of blended learning.
