This is an adaptation of Buffalo State's "Ignite Your Everyday Creativity" MOOC that will serve the people of Myanmar (and potentially the Burmese refugees around the world) to support their efforts to solve vexing problems by engaging their creative thinking skills, even when resources are limited.

This pilot leverages experts from WNY high schools, and three college sectors to create short, self-paced OER learning modules that address skill sets for all students transitioning from high school to college level learning; outcomes will provide early diagnostic tools to support learners throughout their college careers.
An innovative educational framework for interdisciplinary educational collaboration for biomedical data science based on online open educational resources
- Ioana Coman, SUNY Oswego
- Franck Middleton, SUNY Upstate
This project proposes to create, with SUNY Upstate, online open educational resources (OERs) as a source for a cascade of educational offerings to serve diverse learners in interdisciplinary fields with a test-bed focus on biomedical data science.
Our project provides a series of three MOOC-like courses, one being offered by Coursera, that learners can take to complete a certificate and receive an award of completion in Biomedical Data Analysis at an affordable cost. The access to the Big Data, Genes, and Medicine course in particular has expanded our educational reach to an amazing worldwide audience of currently 4,078 learners of varied backgrounds and socio-economic status.
