The University of Michigan and the Center for Academic Innovation are proud to be the first university partner with social learning platform FutureLearn in the launch of FutureLearn Campus. This new offering in the platform allows Michigan students, staff and alumni access to online short courses on FutureLearn.
“Both FutureLearn and the University of Michigan are committed to delivering high-quality education and transforming access to learning,” said James DeVaney, Associate Vice Provost for Academic Innovation at the University of Michigan. “In addition to engaging learners around the world, our partnership with FutureLearn also allows us to provide new learning experiences to our campus community as they seek to deepen knowledge, obtain new skills, and explore new areas of interest.”
“At FutureLearn, we believe that high-quality education should be as accessible and flexible as possible. In an increasingly digitalized society, FutureLearn Campus will provide universities with the tools they need to share their content with students and staff all over the world while bridging that gap between their online and in-person offerings,” said Justin Cooke, Chief Content and Partnerships Officer at FutureLearn. “Of course, at the moment, due to the coronavirus outbreak, we know online learning is high on universities’ agendas as they do their best to support their staff and students to continue their teaching and studies as normal. We’re working closely with a lot of our partners to support them to do this and we hope FutureLearn Campus is a help at this time.”
