Massive, Online, Distance, Self-Directed, Flipped, Blended? Learning models are evolving and changing, and this means new challenges for preservation. With an increasing amount of lecture and course content living in the digital realm, new models for preservation are key. Most courses contain recorded lectures, hosted on YouTube or a MOOC platform like Coursera or edX; required or supplemental readings and resources; user participation forums that may be divided into smaller student-led groups; and other interactions, such as virtual office hours for instructors. Final projects may include student created content. Which of these materials should be preserved? How can such diverse content types be connected to the original course? What copyright issues may be involved?

Bring your questions for two online learning librarians who have been deeply involved in the creation of MOOCs, a preservation specialist from Portico, and a representative from SIPX, the leading provider for licensing content into the MOOC space. What lessons have been learned from early MOOC experiments? What new skills may be needed for this emerging scholarly communication space? What content types are used and how? What are the issues related to MOOC courses licensed by other institutions? As an increasing number of universities and colleges experiment with these new models, the time to ensure a practical preservation plan is during initial phases. This roundtable session will ensure maximum audience participation. Speakers will prepare a few slides outlining their main points, then a moderator will take questions from attendees.
