In this ongoing covid situation, parents and students all across the world are seeking ways to get around the inability to travel while the borders remain closed in New Zealand. The pandemic has taught the globe all of the new methods to survive that are possible.
While the majority of the world’s students face physical limitations, the education sector has responded by capitalizing on the tremendous potential of online learning. Virtual mobility has evolved as a way for persons who are unable to physically traverse borders to benefit from some of the traits and advantages of international education.
With all these facts in mind, New Zealand announced the beginning of a new initiative with FutureLearn this week, which will bring online courses from various New Zealand education providers on a common platform to more than 15 million learners across the world. The country is offering a New Zealand education to those who can’t be onshore due to COVID-19 restrictions via this initiative. They are also reaching out to a broader audience of students looking for online options and building a pipeline of students interested in studying in New Zealand.
Through this initiative, ENZ is assisting the worldwide education sector by encouraging online engagement with a global audience. The collaboration with Future Learn allows New Zealand to explore the value of marketing New Zealand content online under a national banner, as well as the advantages of collaborating with other third parties that already have online audiences.
FutureLearn offers high-quality online courses that allow learners to gain skills and upskill in areas of interest or necessity from the comfort of their own homes, with the option to transition into on campus study once the border opens. Short courses from universities, English language and TESOL educators, vocational/institutes of technology, and edtech educators, including virtual reality creators and game designers, are among the New Zealand resources gathered for this initiative.
It’s worth noting that sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor in a student’s study choices. To meet this need, more than half of the courses offered as part of this initiative are focused on sustainability. Teaching and learning for sustainable education, English language for sustainability, and growing a sustainable workforce are just a few of the courses available.
