In the words of our Vice-Chancellor at the recent launch of our Open UOW Open Education initiatives:
“MOOCs are a huge opportunity for us to deliver on our strategic plan objectives around being a Digital University, about being ambitious, and of being in the top 1% of universities in the world. It's about being openly-connected, making sure we stay relevant to the future need of our students, and using our eLearning world as part of the driver towards that long-term goal of being a Digital University”.
