For Miner Library’s monthly workshop series librarians, Linda Hasman and Valorie Hallinan, presented MOOCs: The World’s Best Courses for Free. Participants were treated to several entertaining MOOC videos, given some background and history on the MOOC craze, and discussed some of the more philosophical considerations and controversies over what can arguably be called the hottest topic in education.
Did you miss out on all the fun? Well, there was a handout that provides some informational links. You can do some MOOC perusing on your own.
Even if you did miss May’s MOOC workshop, you can catch June’s session. The topic will be Medical Apps. Join us on Wednesday, June 26th from noon-1:00 for our ongoing series on Medical and Productivity Apps for mobile devices. Other topics in the coming months include: staying safe online, Mt. Hope Cemetery discussion, and food blogs and recipe swaps.
