Oxford University to launch first 'Mooc' course
Oxford University has announced its first "massive open online course" - or so-called Mooc - in a partnership with a US online university network.
These free online courses have grown in popularity with hundreds of universities and millions of students.
But until now Oxford has not offered such Mooc courses.
It is going to run an economics course partnered with online platform edX, set up by Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
