  • Launch of MOOCs-for-Refugees Program

    MOOC wordleThe U.S. Department of State and massive open online course provider Coursera are partnering in launching Coursera for Refugees, a program to offer career training to displaced people around the world. The program will focus on nonprofits that help refugees, which will be able to apply for fee waivers to access the Coursera course catalog. The organizations will then be able to offer free access to MOOCs to the refugees they serve. The State Department will help Coursera find organizations that can host in-person cohorts of refugees enrolled in the same MOOC. The first such cohort will be hosted at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. Coursera is the latest MOOC provider to offer educational services to refugees. Earlier this year, edX partnered with Kiron, a free education provider for refugees, to offer college credit to Syrian migrants.
