Education platforms Coursera and edX - Imperial College’s partners for online learning - have agreed to provide free access to their entire catalogue of teaching material from partner universities participating in their response initiatives to COVID-19. This means that not only is Imperial sharing our own expertise with the world, but we are also able to benefit from the expertise of others.

Each platform can be accessed in slightly differing ways. See below for further instructions.

Coursera Instructions:

  • Create a Coursera account linked to your Imperial email address.
  • Use this link to have instant access to the entire Coursera catalogue.
  • If you are unfamiliar with the material available for your discipline on Coursera, we would recommend you review courses here. From this webpage you can filter courses by discipline.
  • You can browse and select the course material you would like to use.
  • If you require any additional advice or guidance at this point we ask that you contact the Digital Learning Hub at the following email address: digitallearning@imperial.ac.uk
  • When you are ready to share the course material with your students you need only share the link to the selected course.
  • The link will take them to the same catalogue homepage that you initially have viewed. They will need to click on the ‘Join for free’ button and they will be automatically redirected to the specific course material.
  • Please note: To access the material your students will also need to create a Coursera account linked to their Imperial email address.
  • The Coursera Rapid Response Program will be available until September 2020

 

EdX Instructions:

  • Create an EdX account linked to your Imperial email address.
  • If you are unfamiliar with the material available for your discipline on EdX, we would recommend you review courses here. From this webpage you can filter courses by discipline.

  • Once you have found material that you think might be useful for your teaching, we ask that you contact the Digital Learning Hub at the following email address: digitallearning@imperial.ac.uk
