MOOC Delivery Session GraphicGood planning + a solid design + creative materials development = positive delivery experience for students and faculty alike. If you have attended the other webinars in this series, you should have a good idea of what it takes to plan and put together MOOC. This session will focus on what happens after the MOOC is live and being used by tens of thousands of people around the world. We will share delivery and support strategies used by instructional designers to meet the challenge of such massive courses. We will also discuss the lessons learned from teaching and supporting five very different MOOCs, including what worked well, what we changed midstream, and what we would do differently. In addition, we will have Richard Alley and Anthony Robinson share their insights into teaching a MOOC for the first time.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this webinar participants will:

  • Be familiar with potential delivery strategies.
  • Be familiar with potential student support strategies.
  • Take away some ideas that work to apply in future MOOCs.
  • Be able to identify potential pitfalls.
