ALA > MW > AASL > 2014 > Is There a MOOC in Your Future? > January 26 2014 > 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location:

Pennsylvania Convention Center / 102 A

Description:

MOOCs, Massive Online Open Courses, are often offered free or nominal cost and allow hundred, even thousands, of students easy access to lectures from faculty without registering with the university. What do these mean for the future of education and what should the role of librarians/library educators be in their implementation? A panel and discussion about the many issues surrounding MOOCs in terms of librarian’s support for patrons, support for implementation of MOOCs through resources, technology, and local support groups, the possibilities for offering our content through a MOOC, and opportunities for our own continuing education.
