A free online math course created by professors at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has won a national award from an online learning company.

The Massive Open Online Course organized and taught by UW-L faculty won the 2013 Desire2Excel award for showing “exemplary ingenuity, creativity and collaboration in empowering students to achieve their academic goals,” according to the university.

MOOCs are free and open to anyone with an Internet connection, though UW-L’s course was aimed at getting students ready for college math. Thousands of people from across the world took the class earlier this year, including students from 40 states and 40 countries.

The company that sponsors the award, Desire2Learn, created the platform used for nearly all UW online classes.
