Moocshop: A Research-Oriented Workshop On Massive Open Online Courses > July 2013

The Moocshop will survey the rapidly expanding ecosystem of Massive Open Online Courses. We will foster a cross-institutional and cross-platform dialogue in order to articulate and synthesize the plurality of challenges that arise when evaluating and designing MOOCs. While the forms and functions of MOOCs are currently evolving, we aim to develop a shared foundation for an interdisciplinary field of inquiry moving forward.

We invite researchers, technologists, and course designers from universities and industry to share their approaches and perspectives on key topics, including analytics and data mining, assessment, credentialing, pedagogy, platform design, data standards, and privacy.

Date: July 9 or 13 @ the Artificial Intelligence in Education Conference in Memphis, Tennessee
