Librarian to… world domination. How collaborative working accidentally created a MOOC (and a SPOC!)
“Fancy creating a MOOC, Kate?”Er….not really….but that’s exactly what the CfAP team did in 2013!
This presentation will outline the process of accidently creating a MOOC – all the highs and lows as well as how the team worked collaboratively to ensure its success. The process of transforming a face to face taught module into a blended and then 100% online course will be outlined and a detailed explanation to each stages and the hurdles overcome by the team will also be examined.
Not the same paper; different angles/perspectives:
- ALT-C (Warwick) – September 2013
- ALDinHE (Huddersfield) – April 2014
- Blackboard Conference (Dublin) – May 2014
