The participating universities, which include UM, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Sun Yat-Sen University, South China University of Technology, South China Normal University, and Southern Medical University, offer various types of online open courses through the MOOC-based collective development model. The model aims to promote the recognition of credits for online open courses within and between universities, facilitate the integration of online and offline teaching, and enable the sharing of quality teaching and learning resources. Katrine Wong, director of the Centre for Teaching and Learning Enhancement, received the award on behalf of UM.

Established in 2018, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Universities Online Open Course Alliance focuses on developing quality online open courses, establishing an interconnected online open course platform, and providing free online open courses to enhance the public's science and cultural literacy.
