Seminar review: Practical considerations of running a MOOC

The University of London’s (UoL) Centre for Distance Education (CDE) provides thought-provoking lunchtime seminars on topics of interest to learning technology practitioners and staff who teach or administer online courses. A recent well-attended seminar on the practicalities of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) included presentations on MOOCs in English Common Law (ECL) and Creative Programming (CP). 

Julie Voce, E-Learning Services Manager at Imperial College and I wrote up our notes of this event and they are available on the ALT Online Newsletter
