Open MOOCS with the Open Education Consortium

1,171 views

Published on

Join the Open Education Consortium for this free, open webinar on the use of Open MOOCs to support global learning and certificates.

DATE: Tuesday, March 10, 2015
TIME: 10:00 am PST, 1:00 pm EST

The MOOC frenzy of a couple years ago has slowed down but the idea of sharing knowledge globally paired with the ability to earn inexpensive completion certificates still resonates. The Open Education community has clarified the definition of “open” in Massive Open Online Course to mean courses featuring open educational resources (OER) that can be re-used freely by learners and educators alike. In this webinar, you will get to hear about OER-based MOOC courses developed by Open Education Consortium members: Tufts University and Scottsdale Community College.

Tufts University offered the first in a 2-part MOOC series: The Biology of Water and Health last fall on the edX platform. The course examines critical water-related issues through a global and interdisciplinary lens focusing on the importance of water, sanitation and hygiene to maternal and child nutrition and growth, and encourages participants to explore social, economic, and behavioral dimensions. Hear how Part 1 of the course was developed, opportunities for learner interactions, and the learner outcomes from the first offering of the course. Plans for Part 2 will also be shared and how it will differ based on the experiences of Part 1.

A Scottsdale Community College English instructor developed an open MOOC on the Canvas platform to help other faculty find and develop OER materials for Composition and Rhetoric to use in their teaching. Hear how the course helps faculty to understand open licenses and develop their own high-quality OER materials to lower costs for their students and expand access.

  • Open Education Week is a celebration of the global Open Education Movement. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the movement and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide. Participation in all events and use of all resources are free and open to everyone.
  • The Community College Consortium for OER is a community of practice dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of open educational resources to enhance teaching and learning. We were founded to support the community college mission of open access through creating awareness and development of openly licensed, low-cost education materials to make college more affordable and accessible for students. We provide regularly scheduled online and face-2-face workshops for faculty and staff who are engaged in OER projects.
