The UQx project, in partnership with edX, expands UQ's reach to learners around the globe.

UQx is a project tasked with enhancing UQ teaching and learning experiences through better designed and implemented online learning interactions, and promoting scholarly research on teaching and learning.

The project accomplishes these goals by developing online courses (MOOCs) and learning experiences (SPOCs) through the not-for-profit online education venture edX.

Founded in 2012 by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), edX is committed to making high-quality educational experiences more widely available.

Each UQx course/project is allocated Learning Design, Media Production, Project Management and Technical Innovation support to work alongside content matter experts drawn from UQ schools, institutes, centres and partners.

We aspire to create online learning experiences which reflect the teaching and research capability of UQ, and reflect UQ's values globally.
