MOOC Resources for Educators: Getting Started

A guide to locating and using resources for the teaching of MOOCs


The University of Sydney Library supports our educators in their development of MOOCs.  This guide brings together a variety of relevant Open Access resources to assist staff in locating appropriate materials (in the tabs above). 

It also includes information about MOOCs, the Coursera platform and copyright and licensing issues.

Please contact our Academic Liaison Librarians who can assist staff with finding Open Access resources for MOOCs or advise you on how to obtain copyright permission.


Coursera is an education platform that partners with top universities and organisations worldwide, to offer courses online for anyone to take. Coursera provides guidelines on the appropriate use of resources that may be covered by copyright and licensing law.
