I received the following message re: the upcoming Artificial Intelligence in Education Conference (AIED), which includes a MOOC-focused workshop (MOOCshop no less). How should EdLab best be involved? (EdLab alums/partners - Professor Ryan Baker, Neil Heffernan etc. are presenting). What are potential points of contact? Twitter?
First Annual Workshop on Massive Open Online Courses(moocshop)
July 9th or 13th (pending) - at the Artificial Intelligence in Education Conference in Memphis, TN
The moocshop will survey the rapidly expanding ecosystem of Massive Open Online Courses. We will foster a cross-institutional and cross-platform dialogue in order to articulate and synthesize the plurality of challenges that arise when evaluating and designing MOOCs. While the forms and functions of MOOCs are currently evolving, we aim to develop a shared foundation for an interdisciplinary field of inquiry moving forward.
