2019: The year MOOC platforms start to die? Adieu Open2Study

Apostolos K., Multilitteratus Incognitus, Jan 18, 2019
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Courses from Open2Study were being advertised on Class Central as late as this month, but I can confirm this report from Apostolos K. that Open2Study has shut down its free short courses service. The home page now has a notice saying "you can find undergraduate and postgraduate courses taught entirely online through 15 top Australian universities with Open Universities Australia." Apostolos writes, "it does seem a little weird that no announcement was made. Even as late as December 2018 their Facebook page sent kind reminders for students to finish up work before the next iteration of the course started, and a number of facebook posters indicated that they had signed up for the new round of courses starting in early January (this month)."
