Project Summary:

This project proposes to create, with SUNY Upstate, online open educational resources (OERs) as a source for a cascade of educational offerings to serve diverse learners in interdisciplinary fields with a test-bed focus on biomedical data science.

Project Outcome:

Our project provides a series of three MOOC-like courses, one being offered by Coursera, that learners can take to complete a certificate and receive an award of completion in Biomedical Data Analysis at an affordable cost. The access to the Big Data, Genes, and Medicine course in particular has expanded our educational reach to an amazing worldwide audience of currently 4,078 learners of varied backgrounds and socio-economic status.
