College Consensus badge

Doane University has been recognized by College Consensus as one of the top 50 colleges in the nation to offer free online courses.

A number of elite and innovative institutions have been offering massive open online courses (MOOC), which Doane offers through DoaneX. Some MOOCs are intended for continuing education credit for working professionals who need to keep up a license or certification, but there are also MOOCs that, packaged together, culminate in a certificate that carries job market recognition.

To rank the top 50 colleges that offer MOOCs, College Consensus featured only accredited colleges and universities that are "known and trusted regionally and nationally."

Doane University ranks 37th on the list, which includes MIT, Harvard, Penn, Yale, Duke, Stanford, Northwestern, and Michigan, among others.
