Librarian in Training: The MOOC Library Degree

Librarian in Training: The MOOC Library Degree | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

I'm a fan of continuing professional education (hence the title of this blog!) and I often look to courses to fill gaps in my knowledge or give me a taste of something new. MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) are one way to take courses that fit around my normal work schedule and in the past I've been something of a MOOC addict. Although they do have their downsides I think they also have many benefits if both the institution and the participant are prepared to put in the commitment needed.

We very much hope that this course will be a service to the library and education community, and that it provides a relatively fun and painless way to go deeper into copyright than the average presentation or short workshop allows.

N.Y. Public Library Plans Face-to-Face ‘Classes’ for MOOC Students

N.Y. Public Library Plans Face-to-Face ‘Classes’ for MOOC Students | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

In a pilot program with Coursera, the New York Public Library plans to organize meet-ups at which people taking massive open online courses can gather and discuss the courses with help from “trained facilitators.”

 

The partnership is part the MOOC company’s effort to build an infrastructure for in-person learning around its free online courses. Research has suggested that MOOC students who receive offline help earn higher scores on their assessments.

The University of Wisconsin–Madison (UWM) is offering a new four-week massive open online course (MOOC) on Changing Weather and Climate in the Great Lakes Region. What’s different about this endeavor, besides the strong local interest angle, is that the university, in coordination with Wisconsin Library Services (WiLS), is partnering with 21 public libraries across the state. The collaborative venture will share scientific information about global warming via video, readings, an online discussio

NYPL and U. Penn Partner for In-Person MOOC Support

NYPL and U. Penn Partner for In-Person MOOC Support | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

NYPL instituted a partnership with Coursera earlier this year, as part of its Learning Hubs Initiative, which arranges free in-person discussion groups to enhance the content of selected courses. Luke Swarthout, director of adult education services at NYPL, explained that as libraries already play this role for people interested in pursuing interests outside of an academic setting, the collaboration with Coursera was a natural progression. This past summer, for instance, participants in a computer programming series at the Bronx’s Tremont branch wished to continue meeting after the class ended, and NYPL has made space available to them for several months. The main question, Swarthout told LJ, was: “What is helpful to lifelong learners? Does the physical space add value to lifelong learners?”

Looks like the Mentored Open Online Course (R) of @leuphanadigital is onto something: @Coursera partners with @NYPL and @Penn to extend #MOOC towards a #BlendedLearning format. Perhaps it is time to redefine the #xMOOC label (which nobody seems to like) with this learning model in mind?

New MOOC Teaches Educators and Librarians About Copyright

New MOOC Teaches Educators and Librarians About Copyright | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it
For many of us in the information industry, copyright is the bane of our existence. We need more than a passing familiarity with key intellectual property and copyright issues, yet the environment is incredibly complex. And while copyright issues plague libraries and the teaching profession, most of us without formal legal training and degrees don't feel adequately prepared or comfortable responding to questions we face during the normal course of business. So the announcement that a team of three well-respected librarian-lawyers would be teaching a massive open online course (MOOC) through Coursera about copyright was greeted with a great deal of excitement from within the library community. Fortunately, the free course did not disappoint.
