About IIMBx MOOC:

IIMB partnered with edX, the non-for-profit Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) provider to launch IIMBx last year. MOOC is a powerful force in the online education that has opened doors to quality education in every corner of the world. IIMB jumps into the wagon to up-skill the vast Indian talent pool that has traditionally been handicapped by physical capacity constraints of premier educational institutions.

IIMBx MOOCs embraces the "active learning" methodology by giving the learner the opportunity to employ various learning modalities - listening, watching, reading and acting on the knowledge gained. Each concept is explained using a carefully designed learning sequence that intersperses byte-sized videos with quizzes, readings and assignments. Discussion forums with thought-provoking questions add to the peer learning experience.
