Teaching goes massive: new skills required (Coursera)

Created by: Delivered by:

The course offers a review of (at least) the business, legal, pedagogical and technical aspects of MOOCs, destined to higher education professionals who might feel threatened by them in terms of job security.

The course grew out of the author's experiences as an early adopter and advocate of newer technologies (such as Coursera) for online teaching.

During the past year, the author often came in contact with higher education professionals who felt lost in the new landscape, and unprepared technology-wise. This is an attempt to educate anyone in this situation, and thereby empower everyone to anticipate changes in the field and make better professional decisions.

Part of the emphasis will be to explain the technology, because it was and will be a catalyst of further evolutions in education.
