Emory Begins Online Course Offerings

Emory joins schools like Brown, Vanderbilt and the University of London in the course offerings.

Emory University has announced it will begin offering a large number of course online in liberal arts, health sciences and policy studies.

The online course offerings will begin next spring.

The courses will be offered through Coursera, an online course provider that is also offering courses from Brown, Vanderbilt, Ohio State University, the University of Maryland, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the University of London.

Coursera hosts more than 200 courses from 33 domestic and international universities and reaches over 1.3 million students across the globe.

"This is a remarkable opportunity to extend our impact by offering learners everywhere in the world the chance to experience a rich and diverse sampler of Emory faculty and course topics," said Earl Lewis, Emory's provost and executive vice president for academic affairs.

"At the same time, we also anticipate learning lessons of our own from this experience, as we consider future ways in which digital communications might build on and enhance our existing campus-based programs."
