A faculty development presentation on the *basics* of MOOCs. Links to further resources provided as we went into much more discussion than the slides show. This was an active learning session, with much discussion & activity, so please don't assume the slides = 1 hr of narrated .ppt! Contact me if you would like a copy of the lesson plan.
