MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses)


University of Maryland MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) help millions of learners worldwide to expand their knowledge for professional development, skills advancement, and within topics of interest. From Cybersecurity, to Agile Project Management, to Business and Entrepreneurship, UMD’s MOOCs have achieved the highest rankings, topping the international Top 10 MOOC lists of the 2010s and 2020s.

Most MOOCs are available for audit and, for some students who wish to earn a MOOC certificate, they may be awarded through a paid option. The paid version of a MOOC typically grants the learner access to all of the MOOC resources, including assignments and assessments, which are not necessarily provided with the audited course version.
