An online course can provide an ideal solution for the dissemination of research to either the general public, a wide research community or just a niche population of experts. High profile research bids often include a requirement to demonstrate research impact or define a method for supporting public engagement.
When the interested population is substantial, diverse, international or hard to reach, a short online course may provide a cost efficient option. An online course could also be used for research data collection through appropriate participant collaboration and surveys.
The Digital Education Service offers different options for developing an online course that is suitable for promoting your research.
