Open Universities Australia | 24 May 2013
Open Universities Australia’s MOOC program – Open2Study – has recorded completion rates of around 26% – almost four times higher than the average MOOC completion rates of 7%. Since it launched in late March 2013, Open2Study has had over 20,000 enrolments and has currently attracted students from over 100 countries.
Open2Study offered 10 subjects, each four weeks long, which were pitched at what was judged as areas of key interest to people.
Open2Study has also identified that approximately 50% of enrolled students do nothing after enrolling. But of those students who start their study, 51% complete their learning.
As Australia’s first free online education platform, Open2Study currently has 14 subjects available online. With new subjects added every month or so, Open2Study anticipates to have at least 40 to 50 free subjects available by the end of 2013.
