Presenter: Kent Gerber, Digital Library Manager, Bethel University
What is a MOOC, what is it like to take one, why are they important, and what do they have to do with libraries? This session will provide answers to these questions and give attendees a closer look through the presenter’s experience as a participant in seven different courses in 2012. Participants will be better prepared to discuss and make use of the opportunities and challenges these new learning communities present to our institutions. Come learn about the different kinds of MOOCs, how they can be used to learn new skills, how they implement and share open educational materials, and other topics to engage your colleagues and campus community in conversations about their future.
