If you had to select the best Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) platforms, how would you do it? You could compile the individual course ratings offered on each system (see coursetalk.org) or you could do what several people do when choosing a program; look at university rankings to give you an indication of the quality of the academic programs.
The following example is for Harvard University, a parnering university of edX.
We simply compile all 9 World Rankings and average the ranks. This average is then added with the other partnering universities and averaged.
|University||ARWU||G-factor||HEEACT||Leiden||QS World||SCImago||Times HigherED||UR by AP||Webometrics||AVG.|
In the first section of the visualisation below, we can see that edX has the best overall ranking.
