Lessons from MOOCs and schMOOCs
Date: March 21, 2014 
Time: 2:00-3:00 PM ET.  

Presenters: Steve Gilbert and Beth Dailey, John Sener

free to all


How can those who offer MOOCs/SCHMOOCs/MOOCOWs:
  1. Identify, fulfill, and shape participants' expectations? 
  2. Generate, accommodate, and make an asset of a "massive" group of participants?
We will debrief the latest 7 Futures schMOOC experience as well as MOOCs in general.  What we are learning about MOOCs and how does this influence design and our participation as a learners?

Topics to be addressed:

  • Offering various learning paths
  • The role of the Designated Learner
  • How do or should we define success?
  • Should we offer a certificate?
