Presenter: Jeff Butterfield, Western Kentucky University

MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) have burst on the higher-education stage in recent years and could be a potentially disruptive influence. MOOC developers are working aggressively to find effective ways to reach out to large groups of distributive students. Many of us are active with online and blended education and some of the MOOC's secrets are gems we can use in our own courses. Come learn about the current state of MOOC education and how you can adopt some of their best practices at your school!

  6. 6. Why Would I Want to Teach a MOOC? • Have you taught some on-line courses before? • What would those courses be like if you had 100, 1,000, 10,000 or 100,000 students in the class? • Most of us probably won’t teach a Mega class…but we may need to scale our classes (effectively) in the face of changing economics.
  7. 7. Is There Something More Manageable? • Many faculty are interested in teaching a SPOC (“spook”) • Smaller Private Online Course • Bigger than their current courses • Only open to enrolled students/prospective students (not the entire world)
