MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are a relatively recent, and rapidly growing, innovation in distance learning. Our purposes are to help newcomers to MOOCs find their way round, and to share feedback on the MOOCs members are currently studying. Our meetings are very informal, over a cup of coffee, and range widely over every conceivable topic, stimulated by the subjects members have been learning about on MOOCs.

The range of topics is enormous – and can be checked on the group page of Perth U3A’s website where we lodge summaries of our meetings. The main provider of MOOCs in UK is Future Learn, but members opt into courses offered by other providers such as Coursera (largely American based). We also delve into other online learning opportunities, such as TED talks, which are readily available on the internet.

Our web page has a wealth of background material about MOOCs and how to get the best out of them and we encourage members to post reviews of courses they have completed.

We meet in the U3A room, Unit 7, Perth Business Centre and our meetings are very informal. All are welcome and it is not a prerequisite to have been actively engaged in studying MOOCs.
