Expanding Your Education Through MOOCs

In a previous post, we explained what MOOCs are and what makes them unique compared to other forms of higher education. In this post, we’re going to talk about how you can actually use MOOCs to expand your education and training. Whether you are interested in simply gaining new knowledge, learning a new skill or further developing your professional abilities, MOOCs offer an accessible (open online courses) and affordable (usually free) way to accomplish this.

Yak Attack Update, Following Stage 7

Hello fellow NCU students and alumni,

Greetings from Manang! So far the race is going great. We have finished through stage 7 and are on our rest day now. The team is certainly tired, but we are in a great position to attack these last few stages. Aayman Tamang, one of our Nepali riders, has finished on the podium in several stages and is sitting in third place overall. He has a great shot at the overall podium and we will be working hard to keep him in that position.
