A/V Now Available > Free Webinar > A Practical Response to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) > June 26 2012 > 11:00 AM (CT)


June 26 2012 / 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM (CDT)

If you haven’t heard the hype about MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), you soon will.

These free classes are only offered online and they’re wide open to anyone who wants to sign up. Some of the biggest brands in academia have announced impressive MOOC plans, and a few superstar instructors have jumped in with both feet. Skeptics call MOOCs outliers, but most people agree that whatever happens, MOOCs will make an impact on the way we teach both students and adult learners in the future.

So what does this trend mean for you, your faculty and your campus?

Join our live webinar, hosted by Casey Green of The Campus Computing Project, to participate in a lively discussion on how to take advantage of the MOOC buzz to get your own courses online, right now.

Our panel will discuss:

  • Where do MOOCs fit in the larger online learning ecosystem?
  • What impact will MOOCs, flipped and hybrid classes have on traditional, synchronous face to face education?
  • Can the MOOC model help unlock the online teaching potential for every instructor on your campus right now?
  • How does online instruction and video knowledge fit into the personal learning environment of your existing students? And how will it be captured, distributed and delivered in a post-MOOC world.
