MOOC Meets Learning 2.0 by Dr. Michael Stephens

hyperlibMOOC

 

  • In Fall 2013, the SJSU School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) will be offering its first open online course, the Hyperlinked Library MOOC. It is adapted from an existing online graduate course offered to SJSU students enrolled in the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program, and is intended to serve as a professional development opportunity for librarians, library staff, and professionals who work in archives and other types of information centers. The SLIS MOOC will be free and will not be offered for academic credit.  It will run from September to November, and will explore how libraries are using emerging technologies to serve their communities. I will be co-teaching with SLIS Lecturer Kyle Jones, along with course assistants, who will be SLIS graduate students.  The MOOC will run on the open-source blogging platform WordPress enhanced with a suite of plug-ins called BuddyPress.
