This MOOC is free to all and is designed for content curation and community building. Each week will include consuming course materials, curating quality resources and developing and critiquing new lessons.
This MOOC is designed around collaboration and peer group building. The course will be delivered using the Google Plus platform with content being delivered via the SoftChalk Cloud. All technologies are free to use for all participants. Participants should be willing to spend at least three hours a week reviewing content and sharing ideas.
This course is designed to connect participants rather than just deliver knowledge. We hope that all participants will leave with a new peer group that will persist beyond just this course.
