The Business of Mining, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) developed in Western Australia, has topped the 2015 Interactive Media Awards in the United States of America.


Mines and Petroleum Minister Bill Marmion said the success of the course reflected WA’s innovation capacity and helped promote the State’s mining and education excellence worldwide.


“Resources and education services are both important exports,” Mr Marmion said.


“I congratulate Curtin University’s WA School of Mines, the Curtin Business School and the industry and State Government experts who contributed to the course.


“So far, more than 1,100 students from almost 170 nations have completed the course, with top participation from the US, Australia and India.”


The Business of Mining was named Best In Class in the university category of the Interactive Media Awards, rated on design, content, functionality and standards compliance.
