OpenupEd distinguishes three kinds of partners: Partners who meet the requirements of the OpenupEd Label, acceding partners who are in the process of obtaining the OpenupEd label and associate partners.

These partners joined forces to create a unique position compared to other MOOC providers. This relates to 1) inclusiveness both in MOOC pedagogy, pathways to HE and in partnership, 2) quality principles and practices represented in the OpenupEd Quality Label and 3) openness, i.e. the role of MOOCs in opening up education.
