When is a MOOC more than a MOOC? When it’s a MOOC-Pack!
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) offer a rich array of free online learning. Any user can follow along at their own pace. Now The University of Iowa’s International Writing Program (IWP) has assembled MOOC-Packs for each of its MOOCS. “A MOOC-Pack provides a MOOC’s core content, packaged with a how-to guide and extra instructional materials. Using a MOOC-Pack, anyone can lead a writing class or a study group.” Of course, you can also enjoy the MOOC on your own.
Browse a list of current MOOC-Packs.
Registration for two new IWP MOOCs will open on March 15, 2017. To stay current with IWP news, sign up to receive the IWP Distance Learning Program’s email announcements.
