Our Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are an effective way to showcase your brand to thousands of women in tech. MOOCs are promoted across our channels and enable the promotion of your brand as a provider of free technical skills to women, globally.

MOOCs are designed in short segments to impart technical skills, career discovery and real-world problem-solving to learners of all abilities. Our MOOC Sprints are 4-week courses that build foundational knowledge across key topics, such as languages, tools, problem-solving and career confidence.

Our MOOC Challenges give members the opportunity to test their new skills with a challenge or project based on real-world examples.
