Utrecht University (UU) launches a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Clinical Epidemiology, starting April 4th on the MOOC platform Coursera. Anyone interested in the basics of Clinical Epidemiology is invited to participate. The course is taught by Prof. Diederick E. Grobbee and Prof. Arno W. Hoes.
Difference with SPOC Clinical Epidemiology
Another study option for students interested in Clinical Epidemiology is the Small Private Online Course in Clinical Epidemiology.This course is offered via the Elevate Health platform. This course is more in-depth and accredited. In the 3-week SPOC course, students study in small scaled classrooms with group interaction and guidance from an E-moderator and course experts.
UU will develop three additional MOOCs in 2016 for each of the strategic themes of the university. The Clinical Epidemiology MOOC was developed under the Life Sciences theme, and three other MOOCS will be developed for the Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies and Sustainability strategic themes.
