WEPS Academy Open Courses
WEPS supports courses at several educational institutions. The course description will specify whether the course is held as an open course, allowing external participants.
WEPS Open Academy Courses
In general, WEPS offers a few courses to students as self-help.
Institutional courses are at specific times opened to students not enrolled at the educational institution via the WEPS Open Academy, which then arranges for the specific certificate to be issued upon course completion. The details of these courses are published when needed.
Past experiences include the WEPS Mathematics Academy, in which USA-AID funded students from Zimbabwe attended remotely the online Calculus courses offered by the University of Helsinki and by Florida State University.
The WEPS Team carries out research on education in particular on the use of "Big Data" to improve student success. This work has been supported by the European Union and is currently a central theme in the Science Across Virtual Institutes collaboration between the US National Science Foundation, Academy of Finland, and TEKES, a Finnish funding agency.
Supported by Academy of Finland, NSF-SAVI.
