Course Description: Using the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Rubric as a guide, this open course will provide both theoretical concepts and practical tools for instructors to recognize, organize, and build online courses for both blended learners and online learners.
What are these newest, biggest online teaching/learning resources? In what ways are they similar to and different from previous online education? How are the most recent activities that claim the label "MOOC" similar to and different from very large, open, free, online courses (e.g., Stanford Computer Science Engineering courses Fall 2011)?
We'll introduce the ideas, provide some references, explore alternatives and select one MOOC for collaborative exploration.
