Espresso Course on MOOCs – Day 1 – ANU Online Coffee Courses

Amazing? Revolutionary? Disruptive to higher education as we know it? Or is it all just hype? In this short Espresso Coffee course we hope to get everyone thinking about these issues and more. These three days provide a taster for a more detailed course on MOOCs that we have planned for 2017. We thought we would use the last Coffee Course for the year to get everyone thinking about this topic – a topic which is sure to stir up discussion!
