MOOC Planning Session GraphicA successful project begins with a well thought out and organized plan. That plan serves as the foundation for the project and can have a significant impact on the cost, duration, and resources needed to complete the project. With a considerable amount of money being invested in the MOOC initiative, we are faced with the reality that effective planning can no longer be overlooked in favor of simply getting the project started. This session will highlight the crucial aspects of project management and planning to ensure you can effectively lead your project to a high quality and successful outcome.
