Authored by some of the most outstanding academics in the IPSA community, IPSAMOOC is a joint project from IPSA and Federica WebLearning. The Center is devoted to innovation, experimentation and dissemination of multimedia distance learning at the University of Naples Federico II.
IPSAMOOCs are an essential tool for a wide number of users: students who are considering or starting a degree in political science; professors and lecturers at any level, who can innovatively complement their existing courses; anyone interested in a better understanding of the challenges facing contemporary democracies.
The IPSAMOOCs are available on edX, the leading MOOC platform founded by Harvard & MIT. All the courses are open, and are free of charge, with a certification available for learners who successfully complete the content and assignments. A small fee is payable for issue of the certificate.
Five of the IPSAMOOCs form part of an XSeries, a new frontier in alternative online qualifications. It combines a set of related MOOCs to form a comprehensive curriculum, leading to a professional certificate that can be included on CVs and applications. The IPSAMOOC XSeries is the first online highly qualified and certified core curriculum in Political Science from a global provider.
With an innovative interface, IPSAMOOC offers interactive classes with no geographical constraints!
