A COURSE PLATFORM HOSTED IN SWITZERLAND
We were born from the need by Swiss Universities to have their MOOCs hosted in cloud infrastructure while having their data protected by Swiss data protection laws and with the desire to have a not for profit entity running the operations of their MOOCs.
The platform is developed and maintained by the Swiss MOOC Service Association, founded by leading Swiss universities EPFL and ETH, and with initial support of USI, SUPSI, HES-SO and the Swissuniversities’ P5 program.
Our service is live and available. Interested public institutions or not-for-profit cooperations can join our national course platform or have dedicated private course platform by contacting SMS Association.
Our course platform offers access to a large diversity of online courses from top institutions. A variety of inspiring lecturers and challenging assignments from different domains and in several languages. You can study online at your own pace and at a time and place that suits you. Enrich your knowledge and portfolio and check out all our top courses.
The Swiss MOOC Service Association offers an online course platform, based on the industry's leading Open edX LMS platform and 100% based in Switzerland, hosted on Switch Engines. For our partners and their students, this ensures a safe environment which is compatible with Swiss data protection laws.
