Duke contributes to neuroscience education beyond campus through MOOCs — Massive Open Online Courses, via Coursera — which allow DIBS and other Duke faculty to reach adult learners around the world.

One of the most popular and highly rated of the 67 Duke MOOCs is Medical Neuroscience, taught by Leonard White, PhD, Associate Director for Education at DIBS and Co-Director of Undergraduate Studies in Neuroscience. In 2016, Medical Neuroscience was again designated a “Top 50 MOOC of All Time” by Class Central from among 8,000+ courses reviewed from about 750 universities worldwide.
