The theme of the Summit this year is 'MOOCs, Coursera & the Online Ecosystem'Where Does Illinois Fit?' This theme has been inspired by campus' recent partnership with Coursera and faculty interest in designing MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses. Some of the discussion sparked by this recent partnership include questions about what the MOOCs phenomenon means for Illinois and what constitutes high-quality teaching and learning in this era of free, high-quality online courses.

Campus leaders and Coursera co-founder, Dr. Daphne Koller, will attend to facilitate discussions and share their views on these topics.
