EdX is pleased to welcome Curtin University, Western Australia’s largest and most culturally diverse university!

An internationally focused institution, Curtin’s mission is to change minds, lives and the world through leadership, innovation and excellence in teaching and research. Through edX, Curtin hopes to enhance their campus-based teaching and learning, and build a global community of online learners who will be actively engaged.

Curtin is committed to improving the digital learning experience for all students through creating high quality interactive MOOC’s on highly desired topics. The first Curtin MOOC to launch on edX will be The Business of Mining in early July.

The Business of Mining MOOC has been developed in collaboration with leading industry and education experts. It uses interactive challenge-based techniques to provide an introduction to the lifecycle of mining, from exploration, through to mine planning, operation and closure.

Welcome, Curtin!
