Case Studies: Short courses

Feedback and advice from the academic leads of a selection of our short online courses.

Four students discussing academic work

We asked the Academic Leads of a range of courses on our three partner platforms - edX, Coursera and FutureLearn -  what their experience was of the course design and development process, online tutoring, building community in the online environment, and support they received from the Online Course Production team.

We also discovered what our Academic Leads found most beneficial about running their own short online course, and how the process has impacted their work and personal objectives. They also shared some valuable insider tips and advice for anyone interested in designing and developing an online course.
