In 2013, The University of Melbourne became the first institution within Australia to partner with Coursera to deliver Massive Open Online Courses to students worldwide. Seven courses were initially developed, since then, the stable of offerings has increased to over 24, and by 2016, over 1 million students will have enrolled in a MOOC offered by The University of Melbourne.
In this session, Peter Mellow and Susan Batur will share their experiences as learning designers actively involved in the development of MOOCs. The feedback and lessons learned as MOOCs continue to evolve make us rethink how we approach all aspects of online learning.
