Research Center of Higher Educational Resources for Openness
National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) has always believed that high quality education resources should not be the privilege of a few and should be made available to as many people as possible. Based on this belief, NYCU was the first university to launch Open Course Ware (OCW) website in the Chinese-speaking societies in 2007. Subsequently, NYCU established the first massive open online course (MOOC) platform hosted mainly Chinese-based courses in 2013: “ewant” open education platform (www.ewant.org). Since then, more than 90 top universities from Taiwan and Mainland China have joined the platform and offered over hundreds of courses each year, making “ewant” the most prominent MOOC platform in Taiwan, with a rich membership base, cooperative partners, and extended MOOCs projects. We aim to promote further research and development in open education.
We have been offering educational courses to the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers and Taiwanese businesses since 2015. Additionally, in 2016, we began providing MOOCs courses to government officials and launched the Freshman Academy program for students in national universities and colleges. In 2018, we started developing the MOOC program for high school students, with a commitment to expanding the capabilities of MOOCs course development.
As of September 2023, we have offered over 10,000 courses, partnered with over a hundred universities and institutions, and has amassed over 500,000 registered users. It has become the largest and most prominent MOOCs platform in Taiwan.
