MOOC Rival OERu Puts Accreditation on the Menu

Students who complete an Open Educational Resources University (OERu) course will be able to pay a fee to have their work assessed for academic credit, which would then be recognized by the 31 universities participating in the OERu. In theory, students could approach any of the partner institutions with evidence of the OERu credits they have amassed and apply for degrees. OERu was officially launched on November 1, 2013 at Thompson Rivers University.
