Slides from Franny Lee

Cost: $110, registration required

Online learning, distance learning, and particularly MOOCs have been increasingly on scope in meeting academic and public education needs. What do these growing areas mean for libraries? Do librarians have a role in such activities, and if so, in what way? This session will feature four case studies by librarians whose institutions have been involved in MOOCs and other online learning venues. Each presenter will describe his/her institution’s thinking and planning, and, in particular, the library’s role in supporting such efforts. The goal of the session is to provide information, generate discussion, and spark ideas about how your own library might be part of this dynamic virtual environment. We welcome participation and ideas from others who have experience in such work, apart from the speakers themselves.
