Massive Open Online Courses

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC)

POLK State College recognizes the value of a massive open online course (MOOC) as an alternative mode of learning, especially for developing skills in reading, writing and mathematics.  However, MOOCS cannot be directly transferred to the College for credit granting purposes.  Students seeking credit for a MOOC must contact the associated credit granting institution, if appropriate, to complete the credit requirements at that institution. The credit would then be awarded on that institution’s transcript as credit and transferred to Polk State College for credit transfer consideration.  MOOCS may contribute to prior learning assessment (PLA) credit as one of the components considered in a PLA portfolio packet.
