MOOC Resources

Unless you have been living on a remote island with no access to the news, you have been overwhelmed with  the 'buzz' around MOOCs. Needless to say, MOOCs are a 'hot topic' with many opinions and a volatile marketplace. Of course the best way to find out what it's all about is to sign up for one - and there are multitudes! Whether it's Coursera, edX, Udacity - or even Canvas.net, there are plenty of selections available. And you won't be alone if you sign up just to 'lurk' without really participating - it's a common practice.

It makes no difference what strategy you use to become better informed, but it's definitely worthwhile to find out what all of the buzz is about. Indeed, it will probably diminish - but I doubt it will just go away. The odds are high that it will be a permanent part of the online learning landscape for years to come, but in what way it's still too early to tell. Hopefully much will be gained from this 'grand experiment' in higher education.

So, to help you get started on your investigation, I'm adding a few resources here:


Enjoy!
