Our Research Methodology courses are now in OpenLearning!
We are happy to announce the launch of our first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) starting in July 2017.
All new research (Master or PhD) students who have registered starting on intake Semester 2 2016/2017 will be automatically invited to join our first MOOC via OpenLearning platform.

WHAT IS MOOC?
A massive open online course (MOOC /muːk/) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as filmed lectures, readings, and problem sets, many MOOCs provide interactive user forums to support community interactions among students, professor and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs are a recent and widely researched development in distance education which was first introduced in 2006 and emerged as a popular mode of learning in 2012.
ABOUT 8 COMPULSORY COURSES
Together with our experts, these courses have been developed with the aim to help students to understand ways and means to carry out research at Master and PhD level. There are 2 sets of 8 modules provided by IPS in accordance with the technology and engineering cluster.
These 8 modules are intended to help students in conducting systematic research owing to its utmost importance in determining the effectiveness and efficiency of the research process. The 8 modules shall help students to understand the research problem and identify the areas of research. The modules also assist students on how to write a literature review in order to understand how other researchers approach, define or manage the problem to keep the research pertinent to what is currently in the field.
In addition, 8 modules also facilitate students to understand the methods of collecting data in an organised and controlled way to achieve valid results analyse the data according to the considered problem and make conclusions. Therefore, IPS hopes that these modules will be able to provide some insights and benefit students in conducting research at Master and PhD level. The module is currently available in English.
