Albert Sikkema

The university wants to offer more online course on the internet in the coming years, using the edX platform.

To this end, the executive board is willing to invest in three new MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses). It has asked chair groups to submit proposals before 1May 2015. The first two MOOCs offered by the university went online on 1January. These were Sander Kersten’s course Nutrition 101 and Ken Giller’s course Growing our Future Food. Already 48,000 students from all over the world have enrolled for these courses.
