MOOCs at Northampton

Study Skills MOOC

What is the Study Skills MOOC?

The Centre for Achievement and Performance (CfAP) created the MOOC in collaboration with the ILT and the Learning Technology team at Northampton to provide study skills tuition in an online environment.

CfAP already support students in person, via email, telephone and Skype. The Centre wanted to extend their offering to support students who felt the need to develop their skills and might not be on campus or could not access support during drop in sessions.

This MOOC is being offered to all students who start their course at the University of Northampton in 2014.

For whom?

The MOOC is now available via the Course Sites MOOC Catalogue so it is open to anyone.
