The 11 educational courses completed in the first year of HSE's cooperation with Coursera won an audienec of 300,000. The courses' lecturers talked about how they succeeded in doing this at a round table at HSE.
On November 24, an English-language course will begin on Coursera called ‘The Economics of Transition and Emerging Markets,’ taught by Marek Dabrowski, a well-known Polish economist and professor in HSE’s Department of Applied Economics.
Will internet education replace traditional universities? Where are lectures harder to give – in the classroom or in front of the camera? Would George Clooney be convincing in the role of a real teacher? The Dean of the HSE’s Faculty of Psychology Vasily Klyucharev, who conducts a neuroeconomics course on Coursera, provides answers to these questions.
The Higher School of Economics joined the project on October 23, 2013 as one of the first Russian universities to partner up with Coursera. At the moment, the HSE offers twelve courses on its page with Coursera.
The HSE is now a partner of Coursera, a leading massive open online course (MOOC) platform. Students from all over the world will now have free access to educational courses delivered by professors of the Higher School of Economics.
