MOOC, anyone?

| No Comments

We sure love our acronyms, don't we? This one stands for massive open online course, and it's just as its name depicts. The University will partner with Coursera (www.coursera.org/minnesota), a leading MOOC platform, to develop free online courses. That's right, they're free. Anyone is welcome to sign up. Since there can be literally thousands of participants in a course, completing assignments is based on the honor system and often includes peer feedback. So far, five University faculty members plan to offer Coursera courses. The University does not currently offer credit for completion of MOOCs.
