The OERu is excited to announce the launch of its first business course with options for stackable micro-credentials.

Introduction to Project Management is a free, online, open education course where participants will learn how to lead, initiate, plan, and execute a project of their choice. This course comprises four micro-courses:
  • Role of the project manager (IPM101)
  • Initiating a project (IPM102)
  • Planning a project (IPM103)
  • Executing and closing a project (IPM104)
The OERu has partnered with Edubits to offer assessment services for learners who want to earn micro-credentials for these micro-courses. Each assessment is small enough to be manageable for busy people, but big enough to be meaningful for employers.

Learners who complete the four associated micro-credentials can gain academic credit towards the Certificate Higher Education Business (OERu), a UK-based qualification from the University of the Highlands and Islands.
For more information see: https://oer.nz/ipm100lp

Hope to see you online!

Best wishes
Wayne

Hi Wayne

 

It will be my pleasure to spread the word in support of the OERu’s free course. I myself will register at a later stage as I am currently taking other courses, thinking about spring if available.
