We are delighted to discover that our Exploring Play: The Importance of Play in Everyday Life MOOC is ranked 29th in Class Central 'Best MOOCs of All Time' 2021 list.

MOOC - exploring play

Exploring Play: The Importance of Play in Everyday Life enjoys the top ranking for The University of Sheffield and we are again the institution with the most courses in the list, sharing that accolade with University of Pennsylvania and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. We are also the only institution on Futurelearn with this number of courses on the list.

The list is comprised of a public vote based on 170,000 user reviews. The Class Central list is 250 courses long but all the Sheffield courses feature in the top 100.

This comes as great news, particularly as the School of Education have another MOOC, which will be on digital literacies, in development and we will be announcing news of it's release soon, so what this space!
