Course Description

Join us at the Faculty Technology Center for a viewing of the 3-day EDUCAUSE Sprint webinars. For more information, please visit: http://www.educause.edu/events/educause-sprint-2013?utm_source=Informz&utm_medium=Email+marketing&utm_campaign=EDUCAUSE

Join us July 30–August 1 for a free, online program of webinars, activities, resources, and discussions focused on the transformative elements of MOOCs—connectedness, scale, data, and new models—and IT’s role. Large-scale online learning is reshaping pedagogy, delivery systems, business models, and credentialing—challenging what it means to be a college or university. The transformation is connecting students, faculty, and institutions in new ways. During the 3-day EDUCAUSE Sprint, we will explore the changes this emerging connected age has for infrastructure, platforms, teaching and learning, analytics, student support, and business models.
