Academic Pathways





As part of your enrollment process at MOOCs University, you will need to choose an Academic MOOC Pathway.  


Suggested MOOC Academic Pathways will be provided across most major academic disciplines, and these pathways will have a modular structure so they can be tailored to your specific MOOCs University objectives.  Depending on your personal goals at MOOCs University, you may be able to create your own MOOC academic pathway. 


MOOCs University academic pathways are designed and structured with the input of top global academic and corporate leaders.  The pathways are based on currently available and announced MOOCs, but as new MOOCs are launched, pathways will be re-evaluated. 


In addition to Verified Certificate MOOCs University academic tracks, enrolled MOOCs University students will also have access to optional ID Verified assessments per pathway through a number of MOOCs University Assessment and Test partners. 

                                                

                                                  Verified Certificate MOOCs:

Massively Open Online Courses ("MOOCs") are by definition Open and Free courses by some of the world's leading universities, organizations, governments and industry experts.


Most MOOCs offer a free Certificate of Completion for those who successfully complete the MOOC. Some instructors may have some additional completion requirements for receiving the free Certificate of Completion.
 

For MOOC learners wanting to showcase their MOOC courses and achievements to employers, schools and others, a new optional type of paid "Verified Certificate" that verifies that it was you who took and completed the MOOC are now available. 


Verified Certificate MOOCs will verify your identity through a variety of means that can include webcam, keystroke analysis, valid photo identification, test centers, etc. Each MOOC provider and sometimes MOOC itself can require different methods of identification in order to grant the Verified Certificate.


MOOCs University suggested "Verified" Academic Pathways are made up of existing Verified Certificate MOOCs from MOOC providers worldwide.


Below is MOOCs University's latest research study into the prices of Verified Certificates being charged by the different providers and universities. 


Please note that MOOCs University does not make any money from the Verified Certificate MOOC fees listed below, but it is providing the list below as general guidance and resource to MOOCs University students evaluating any of the suggested "Verified Certificate" Academic Pathways.

Astronomers base their studies on research and observation.
Astrology on the other hand, is the belief that the positioning of the stars and planets affect the way events occur on earth. If you're interested in the solar system and the planets, other celestial objects like asteroids and comets, other galaxies and the rest of the universe, what makes up space, and the possibility of alien life or space travel, Astronomy is the field you're considering.

https://www.coursera.org/course/bioelectricity - Duke University: Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach. Recommended Background: Insofar as Bioelectricity, this course begins at the beginning, so all the main ideas can be understood without prerequisite courses.  As electricity is invisible, no one sees it, so the most important prerequisite is one’s willingness to bring imagination, reflection and patience to the topics, so as to allow the ideas to grow and knit together in one’s own mind. Some of the presentation uses equations and other mathematics that come from calculus and differential equations and other parts reason from the physics of electricity and the analysis of circuits, so background knowledge about these subjects is helpful. For example, one needs to recognize that dV/dt is the rate of change of voltage V with time t, so as to understand that C dV/dt is the current through a capacitor C.  As another example, if V=1/r, what is dV/dr?.  A course like this one usually is given to advanced undergraduates or early graduate students in science and engineering, as these students have taken calculus and physics, and differential equations and circuits, and thus are comfortable when notation or simple operations from these fields are used. Verified Certificate listed, but course has note indicating that this option is currently closed.
