HIGH NOON on 5/30: MOOCs, the world’s best courses for free

Are you interested in Massive Open Online Courses, known as MOOCs?

At Noon on Thursday, May 30 Miner Librarians Linda Hasman and Valorie Hallinan will be talking about MOOCs in the History of Medicine Room of Miner Library.

I plan to attend, and I hope to see you there!


MOCCs Wordle

Improvisation. How to Build a Blog. Computational Neuroscience. The History of Rock. Cryptography.

All of these are MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses. The MOOC revolution is making the best teachers and classes available at no cost to anyone with an internet connection.

Please join us at Miner on Thursday, May 30 at HIGH NOON when librarians Linda Hasman and Valorie Hallinan will explore MOOCs.

We’ll look at the “big three” MOOCs, how to enroll in a MOOC, whether you can MOOC your way through college, and some of the controversy surrounding MOOCs. Plus, we’ll feature sneak previews of some of the more tantalizing MOOCs.

Everyone is welcome to this free event. Bring your lunch if you’d like. Please note that this month’s HIGH NOON is on Thursday.

For more information, contact Linda Hasman at 275-3399 or Valorie Hallinan at 275-6873.
