Unusual Massive Open Online Course on Web Science

[zur Übersicht]

A MOOC is "an online course aimed at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the Web" (quote from Wikipedia). Usual MOOCs combine canned content (text, videos, etc.) with interactive, community-oriented feedback sessions. In contrast, our unusual MOOC targets the creation of open and evolving content with interactive, community-oriented feedback sessions. Find more basic information at our starting page: http://studywebscience.org/ . The course itself will be hosted on wikiversity and wikimedia commons, two free and open siblings of the Wikipedia platform: https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Topic:Web_Science

There are three models for certification
1. Joining exams in Koblenz and earning ECTS credits
2. Examination by an outside institution.
   If you are an outside institution and want to award
   credits based on participation in the MOOC exam, please contact us.
3. Informal certification (no earning of ECTS credits)
   by remote participation in the MOOC exam.
