Want to create a MOOC?


Good MOOCs:
Take lots of 9me to create,
Have ins9tu9onal/organiza9onal
support,
Include diverse media,
Remain free (at least in accessing
content),
Address a broad audience,
And will never meet everyones
needs

Apply & Reect


Your school is encouraging teachers
to iden9fy MOOCs for use in virtual
educa9on. As a math teacher, you
are concerned about the amount of
self mo9va9on students must have
when working through a MOOC. If
you nd a MOOC with good
mathema9cal content, how can you
help your students use this resource
produc9vely and eec9vely?
