One of the newest trends in online education is Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), classes that allow literally thousands of students to learn together via distance learning technology. MOOCs provide students from around the world the opportunity to learn from industry experts at little or no cost. They are a great way for individuals to learn new concepts and test their readiness for continued professional development.
We are excited about the tremendous response to our class. Participants told us it was relevant, engaging and very enjoyable. The Innovation and Design Thinking MOOC is currently closed. We hope to offer it again in Fall 2014 and invite all interested participants to join us in the next class.
