Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) engage learners with high quality, open content; instructors can use MOOC modules in “flipped classrooms” and showcase campus programs.
SUNY MOOC Background
The Innovative Instruction Transformation Team, an outcome of the SUNY Strategic Plan, made recommendations to leverage the “Power of SUNY” for supporting academic excellence and student success. A vision for a “network of networks” emerged, including tools and practices that collaboratively increase efficiency and capacity for SUNY-wide delivery of high quality instruction.
The SUNY Provost Open SUNY Advisory Committee (POSAC) led to a better understanding of SUNY MOOCs.
