Massive Open Online Courses, also known as MOOCS, are high-quality online courses on a variety of topics, open to all. These are available to members of the Mount Sinai community and the public at no cost. In addition to the traditional course materials such as videos, readings and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for students.
Three of the top MOOCs available include the following:
1.) The Icahn School of Medicine is participating in the Coursera initiative which is very popular and offers certificates in select programs. View the Coursera courses offered by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai here.
2.) Harvard & MIT’s EdX is also a terrific learning resource.
3.) The KHAN Academy is a very popular initiative and has a finance focus.
