Accounting MOOC

A MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is a free online course designed to be accessed by large numbers of participants from around the world. MOOCs are open to everyone, with no pre-requisites other than internet access and interest. They are self-paced, and you can choose to complete the entire course or only the parts that interest you.

In 2016, CDU developed its first Accounting MOOC with our Chinese partner university, Anhui Normal University. The MOOC offers an interactive introduction to accounting through films, music and stimulating exercises, covering the three modules of basic accounting, financial accounting and management accounting.
