A MOOC is a Massive Online Open Course. A group at MIT is working on classes in entrepreneurship and innovation. They have recently released two MOOCs on entrepreneurship on edX, an online education platform created by Harvard and MIT:
1. "Entrepreneurship 101: Who is Your Customer?"
2. "Entrepreneurship 102: What Can You Do for Your Customer?"Since launching this month, the two MOOCs are already home to over 70,000 students from all over the world. These courses are free and available to everyone, but so far only 20% of the students are women! Check the courses out! You may find the content relevant to your educational and professional goals. The courses feature several successful female entrepreneurs who could be very inspiring to other women in entrepreneurship. You can find some of the interviews with these women at the following links:
Hanna Adeyema, Co-Founder of Tenacity Health
Amanda von Goetz, CEO of Thyme Labs
Vanessa Green, CEO of FINsix
Ning Shirakawa, CEO of Native Mind, LLC
Sandra Richter and Jutta Friedrichs, Co-Founders of Changing Environments

Additionally, students who pass one of these MOOCs with a Verified Certificate will earn $1,000 of credit from Amazon Web Services. (For more information on this credit, visit https://www.edx.org/AWS-activate).
