OCR adapt school Computing MOOC

New partnership between UK exam board OCR and adaptive learning platform CogBooks to personalise first school Computing MOOC

Exam board OCR and adaptive learning experts CogBooks confirmed they are working together to add personalised adaptive learning to the pioneering Cambridge GCSE Computing MOOC.



Since its launch in 2013, over 100,000 users across the world have accessed the Cambridge GCSE Computing MOOC, developed by OCR in collaboration with Cambridge University Press and Raspberry Pi, and based on OCR’s GCSE Computing curriculum.



From September 2014, the addition of CogBooks adaptive technology will allow every student to progress through the MOOC in a way which suits their individual needs. 

Liam Sammon, OCR’s Director of Education and Commercial Services, said: “This partnership will keep students and teachers at the heart of technology. We firmly believe that technology must be harnessed in the interests of education, and that by making the technology free, the reach is potentially massive. CogBooks is a high quality, innovative company that shares our vision and we are delighted to work with them.”
