MOOCs and Opportunities for Educators

Since becoming a Coursera partner in July, 2012, Duke has offered several Massive Open Online Courses and is developing additional MOOCs that span humanities, science, social science, nursing, medicine and engineering.  Duke also has engaged in pilot projects with the Gates Foundation, the American Council on Education and Coursera to explore ways MOOC courses might be used to meet a variety of educational needs. In a presentation for the International Society for Technology in Education on Feb. 13, 2013, I describe how the University’s experimentation with MOOCs and related pilot projects are shaping campus discussions of teaching and learning and consider what the impact may be on K-12 and higher education in the future.  The recorded webinar is available here.
