World University Rankings by MOOC Performance 2021

Discover the world's top universities by their MOOC performance.

MoocLab's World University Rankings by MOOC Performance (WURMP) judge universities on their provision of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). This year’s rankings (WURMP 2021) include 200 universities covering 34 different countries across the world offering courses on the three leading MOOC platforms - Coursera, edX and FutureLearn.

If you are unfamiliar with MOOCs, see MoocLab's MOOC Help Centre.

This table ranks universities based on 5 performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across the number of MOOCs provided, the provision of course programs, course programs bearing credit, degrees and the institution's average world ranking*.

For more information on this process, consult WURMP 2021: Methodology.

*The average world university ranking is the mean score obtained from three of the most trusted World University Rankings: Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THE), QS World University Rankings (QS) and Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). These ranking publishers use different performance indicators such as teaching quality, research quality or the ratio of staff to students to place higher education institutions in order of success and impact. Results across the different rankings will vary according to the measures used and the importance they place on the different performance indicators. These can be used as an indicator of a university's prospects and prestige.
