LMU is using Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to explore new forms of collaborative learning. The LMU MOOCs are available on the Coursera platform, which was created by computer scientists at Stanford University. In 2013, LMU entered into a partnership with Coursera, which is one of the leading MOOC platforms and cooperates with 100 universities worldwide.

The courses are open to all those interested in the subject matter, anywhere in the world. There are no set qualification requirements and the courses are free. All you need is an internet connection.
