Wits has become the first university in Africa to offer MOOCs on edX, an online learning platform established by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012. This will be available over the next three years to enhance access to higher education. These include massive open online courses (MOOCs) on the edX platform, short online courses, and ultimately entirely online degree programmes. The first three MOOCs on the edX platform, WitsX, will be available within the next six months:

  1. System Dynamics for Health Sciences (launches 3 August 2016)

  2. Research Methods: An Engineering Approach (launches 7 September 2016)

Results-Based Project Management: Monitoring and Evaluation (launches 5 October 2016)
