Education, a priority and a basic human right, should be both accessible and affordable to everyone. Technology is changing that, one MOOC at a time.

The digital age is empowering both individuals and institutions to create and distribute educational content online. The expansion of the global technological infrastructure has been instrumental in changing the way we create and obtain information. From machine learning to filmmaking, MOOCs are offered in just about any domain.
