Event Description:
Recent developments in technology for digital education and the rampant emergence of massive open online  courses (MOOCs) are creating the perception of a game-changing, disruptive educational approach that has the potential to transform both access to education as well as the methods we use to teach our own students and the world. While many of the AAUs have jumped on the MOOCs bandwagon within the past six months, and others are actively considering their strategy, many open issues remain. In particular, MOOC business models differ (profit vs. non-for-profit, contracts signed with institutions vs.individual professors) and range from institutional-level (eg., edX) to entrepreneurial-driven activities (e.g., Coursera and Udacity). The approaches for issuing MOOC-based credentials also vary from issuing none to granting certificates of completion, badges, and even University transfer credits based on assessment of learning.

A MOOCs task force website has been developed so that all members of the Stony Brook University community (you have to use your NetID to sign in) can access more information on MOOCS resources and news, as well as on members of the task force and its subcommittees.
