Our Story

Online Duke is managed by Duke Learning Innovation. Originally conceived as a strategic initiative in 2012 to advance educational excellence through online teaching and learning initiatives, Online Duke merged in 2017 with what was then called the Center for Instructional Technology. Together, they formed Learning Innovation, a new initiative with the mission to help Duke students learn more, and help more people learn from Duke. Through online learning, we offer flexible global learning opportunities to a wide set of students throughout their lives.

More than 4 million individuals from virtually every country in the world have signed up for an open‐access online course from Duke. Duke MOOCs have seen significant enrollments from global priority areas:
