Keywords: information and communication technology, information and educational technologies, open educational resources, massive open online course, intellectual property

Abstract

The article analyzes the range of massive open online courses on intellectual property operating on leading distance learning platforms as an element of information and educational technologies. The authors have reviewed online courses operating on the following platforms: Coursera, EdX, FutureLearn, SWAYAM, Canvas Network, E-Learning Center of the World Intellectual Property Organization and others. A brief description of these platforms is given. The massive open online courses that operate on these platforms address various aspects of intellectual property. For each course, the following are indicated: the university or organization that created it; teachers; the language of instruction; course duration and workload necessary for its assimilation; terms of access to the educational resources of the course and obtaining a certificate of completion.

The quantitative division of courses based on countries developing distance learning courses on intellectual property is given. The leaders here are international organizations and the United States. The possibilities of access from the point of view of language training are considered. The vast majority of courses are available in English. A significant part of the courses is also available in Russian. The division of distance courses on thematic focus has been made. A significant number of online courses address only general intellectual property issues. There are very few courses that are useful for gaining thorough knowledge on specific issues. Particular attention is paid to such an important and interesting aspect as the ability to access the content and obtain a certificate for the course. According to these criteria, all courses have been divided into four groups. It has been found that obtaining a certificate on the vast majority of distance learning courses on intellectual property on these platforms is somehow paid or that there is no certificate of completion of the course. Only nine courses have completely free access to educational resources and certification.
