Big Ten Universities Partner to Offer Free Online Courses

This fall, students at any of the seven participating Big Ten Academic Alliance universities will have access to free online courses at other Big Ten schools. The initiative is designed to "enhance educational opportunities for students during the COVID-19 crisis," according to a news announcement.

Available courses include Supply Chain Security and Risk Management; Design Thinking and Creativity; Inequality: Determinants and Policy Remedies; Insect Biology; Introduction to the Built Environment; and Intro to Sports Marketing and Management; among others. The Big Ten schools comprise Indiana University Bloomington, University of Maryland, Michigan State University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, The Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University and Rutgers University-New Brunswick.

"Big Ten universities compete on the field, but until this fight against COVID-19 is won, we are united in the critical research to battle this virus, and united in the classroom," said Lauren Robel, Indiana University Bloomington provost and executive vice president and chair of the Big Ten Academic Alliance board, in a statement.
