Janux is an online interactive learning community created in partnership between The University of Oklahoma and technology company NextThought. It gives students direct connections to courses, educational resources, faculty, and each other, offering interactive content and social tools. All Janux courses are developed by faculty at the University of Oklahoma, with some open courses offered for free to participants who do not receive credit, while some premium courses are available at a low cost for the non-credit option. Students can also earn credit for Janux paid courses.
Janux online courses are scheduled to run in parallel with actual on-site courses and typically last 16 weeks, although students can access content at any time.
