First course on the BUP Course Platform

2022-09-23

The BUP Coordinating Secretariat are happy to announce that we have now published our first massive open online course (MOOC) on the BUP Course Platform. The course Climate Change in the Baltic Sea Region is now available as a self-paced and free of charge course.

The course has been developed by colleagues at BUP participating universities who work in the BUP working model, which means to work in inter disciplinary and intercultural teams of co-operation. Colleagues contribute with their knowledge and experiences in developing the course materials. This way of working offers opportunities to learn from each other and different perspectives as well as different academic cultures.  

The courses on the BUP Course Platform can be accessed independent of time and place, as full distance courses. Students and teachers are able to take a course whenever, as a self-paced learning course. 

If you are interested in looking at or participating in the new course Climate Change in the Baltic Sea Region visit the website for the BUP Course Platform.

There are further opportunities with the material developed for each MOOC course. For example, there is the option to develop more advanced courses, and to give student credits by adding material, assignments, seminars etc. These initiatives must then be taken at each BUP participating university. In this case we will also be able to promote virtual exchange co-operations between BUP participating universities when running credit bearing courses.
