Online Course recommending system. The first result.

Now we are focused on creation the intelligence system of courses management. We aim to generate relationships between courses automatically. Every course from the directory can be mapped to other courses as an alternative or a  prerequisite or s similar subject course etc.

Such type of relationships between courses will be used to generate personal education path automatically and individually for every online student.

For now we release one piece of this work. It is “See also” listing for a course.

On a course description page we will display the list of most relevant courses related to the courses. But not exact alternatives as we have different listing for a course alternatives.

To see how it works just open courses in the directory. Now this function will work for more then half of courses in the directory.

 

How to get college credits after you completed some popular MOOCs

Thousands of people who completed MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) think about possibility to get college credits for new knowledge.

MOOC providers usually don’t do certification and it is not possible to earn credits. For example, Coursera help says it is not possible. However, there are independent organizations who can assign credits based on examinations. Such examination can be called “Get credit for what you already know”.

Recently, we launched the functionality to connect certification exams to MOOCs to find easy relevant exams.

Now we created new tool to see all relevant exams for all MOOC provider courses on one page.

The tool is there – Find certification exams for MOOCs and online courses.

Other interesting tool we launched recently is alternatives listing of courses of a specified provider. See there Find alternatives to MOOCs and online courses.

And the last one new tool is the tool to find courses to prepare to certification exams. It does reverse work to the first tool. Prepare to certification exams using MOOCs and online courses.
