The HEDS HTA MOOC in numbers

1099 people registered for the second run of our free online HTA short course – or Massive Online Open Course (MOOC)

723 of those 1099 (66%) started the MOOC, i.e. logged in after the MOOC's start date (and hence
engaged with some or all of the content).

310 of the 723 who started the MOOC (43%) completed it (by attempting 80% of the MCQs) and qualified for a certificate.

And finally, 73% of those who attempted the MCQs scored 50% or more.

Now it’s time for our MSc International Health Technology Assessment, Pricing and Reimbursement.  If you enjoyed the MOOC or are intrigued by its success, then why not think about registering for the MSc, or the shorter Diploma, the even shorter Certificate or individual modules to sharpen up your skills?
