UQ to Offer MOOCs in Chinese


UQ has partnered with education platform XuetangX to offer five massive online open courses (MOOCs) in Chinese.

UQ Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Joanne Wright said UQ’s partnership with XuetangX provided a valuable opportunity to raise UQ’s profile among Chinese learners and to give them an insight into UQ’s excellent teaching, research and on-campus experience.

“I am delighted that UQ’s MOOCs are reaching a wide Chinese audience through the XuetangX portal,” she said.

“UQ’s partnership with XuetangX extends the reach of our on-campus offerings to Chinese-speaking people.”

“The online experience also reminds Chinese learners that UQ offers world-class campus-based learning for those who may wish to continue their learning with us,” said Professor Wright.

MOOCs are delivered fully online and freely accessed by anyone across the globe with an Internet connection.
XuetangX is the largest Chinese language MOOC education platform, and was launched by Tsinghua University in 2013.
