Program description:
The Summit on Online Education: MOOCs, Coursera & the Online Ecosystem–Where Does Illinois Fit?

What does the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) phenomenon mean for Illinois? Higher education today is experiencing some potential disruption due to the growth of high quality, free online courses. The University's recent partnership with Coursera, faculty's interest in designing MOOCs, the campus mission to continue to enhance access, and the general question of what constitutes high-quality teaching and learning prompted the theme of this year's Summit on Online Education.

Summit outcomes:

  • A deeper understanding of the potential for MOOCs as another online strategy to enhance the teaching and learning process;
  • Clarification of issues and lessons learned related to the design, development,and delivery of MOOCs;
  • Exploration of campus leadership's perspectives on our innovative future; and
  • An opportunity to engage with Dr. Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera.

Who should attend:
All faculty, staff, and graduate students; distance education coordinators, distance learning faculty, distance learning managers, instructional designers, policymakers, subject matter experts, technology coordinators, virtual instructors, and visionary leaders.
