The Digital Learning Center (DLC) at NTU has long been committed to promoting the development of digital learning on campus. Since its inauguration, DLC has served as a platform for open courses, such as the National Taiwan University OpenCourseWare (NTU OCW) and National Taiwan University Massive Open Online Course x Coursera (NTU MOOC x Coursera), offering over 300 online courses to students on and off campus.

In 2020, NTU officially extended its NTU Open Online Course Project to high school students to further promote its online learning resources as well as attract potential college candidates. Through tutoring programs, NTU collaborated with Chenggong High School and The Affiliated Senior High School of National Taiwan Normal University to help sophomores there access NTU's online learning resources and prepare for college. To date, NTU has been working with six high schools, including general high schools, community high schools, and experimental high schools to help increase students’ college preparedness.

Given the success of the project, DLC is now positioned to expand this project to high schools nationwide starting from this academic year. The project will offer high school students the chance to access NTU’s open curriculum and attend a series of courses from NTU OCW and NTU MOOC x Coursera as part of their electives starting this Fall. Students can also join physical and online seminars to share conversations and exchange ideas with NTU professors.

As a leading institution of higher education in Taiwan, NTU bears the social responsibility to close the achievement gap in local society through addressing the difficulties student face while preparing for college. The online project not only allows student to self-learn but also provides them a better picture of college courses. What's more, students can embark on their journey of self-exploration by engaging with different fields of studies ahead of time.
