Iversity is a website that offers massively open online courses for those that want to learn about a variety of subjects.
Iversity is attempting to change the culture of higher education by making all of its courses available online, entirely for free. There truly are no limits to what you can learn from Iversity, as the site works with schools and instructors from around the world to create interesting, valuable courses. Examples of courses offered on the site range from the particularly niche “Designing Resilient Schools” to the more broad “Contemporary Architecture.” The site, like many operating under similar principles, understands that the future of education is likely going to be online, free, and accessible to everyone.
Iversity differs from most free online universities in that there are also courses offered in various languages aside from English. German courses are aplenty on the site, with many courses offered by prestigious German universities. The site is incredibly international in its approach to online learning, as schools from the Netherlands, France, Spain, the United States and a wide range of other places all offer content. For university professors looking to teach a global audience, getting in touch with Iversity and setting up a course is easy. Students that refer a professor that might be interested in setting up a course on the site are automatically entered for the chance to win an iPad. From your iPad, you could learn more about something like “Gamification Design” from the comfort of your home. Why not start learning now?
