ALCTS > Get Ready to MOOC: Why Libraries Should Care


Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are sweeping the country and libraries and librarians are watching this development carefully. This series of four webinars will help librarians gain an understanding of the complexity of the MOOC “movement,” learn how to support students and faculty engaged with MOOCs, become familiar with the copyright and intellectual property requirements in relation to MOOCs, and hear what the future may hold for MOOCs.

The first webinar, on September 25, 2013 will be presented by Mike Eisenberg, dean emeritus and professor, University of Washington Information School, who will set the stage by examining the origins of online learning and explaining why MOOCs continue to thoroughly capture the imagination of students, educators, and administrators.
