Georgia Tech Will Launch on a Course Intended for On-Campus Credit


Georgia Tech will launch on February 2017 a free MOOC on tech on intended to allow applicants to this university to earn college credit before setting foot on campus.

The course “Introduction to Computing Using Python” will feature the same content as Georgia Tech’s on-campus course –a requirement for all undergraduates– and will be created with McGraw-Hill Education’s adaptive “SmartBook” technology.

Students who successfully demonstrate mastery will earn a statement that may be recognized for credit if they later apply and are admitted to Georgia Tech.
