Join us in this MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) where we’ll explore the history and theories behind common approaches to online learning today. We’ll take a look at e-learning from the perspectives of the designer, the instructor, and of course, the learner. Through independent and collaborative activities you’ll get a better understanding of how to conceptualize designs for good e-learning in your context of choice. This course uses open content and will culminate in a final project that will contribute to a growing resource that is freely and publicly available.
