Massive Open Online Courses as Drivers for Change

A project briefing session presented at CNI’s fall 2012 membership meeting by Lynne O’Brien of Duke University. Now available on CNI’s two video channels:

Since announcing a partnership with Coursera in July 2012, Duke has launched two Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and has eight more in development. Spanning humanities, social sciences and science topics, these courses have over 320,000 enrollments as of October 2012. Duke’s goals in experimenting with MOOCs are to drive teaching innovation in both campus-based and online courses, to extend Duke’s commitment to knowledge in service to society, and to expand Duke’s reach and reputation in a global environment.
