Maastricht University is organising its first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on a topic that is central to our education: Problem-Based Learning (PBL).

As this MOOC follows PBL principles, working online in small groups is an important part. Participants can choose to form their own group or ask to be assigned to a group automatically. The total workload of the MOOC is 2 ECTS. Participants who finish the MOOC and contribute sufficiently to group work will be awarded a Certificate of Participation. There is no exam.

Following this pilot, the first full run of the PBL MOOC will be from September-October. For more information about the UM MOOC, please visit:
