MOOCs

What Every ESL Teacher Needs to Know
Pamela S.H. Bogart

Description

"We have an opportunity as ESL teachers to help our students plug in to what MOOCs can offer today: a supplementary space in which to develop vocabulary and text-based conversational skills and to learn foundational content in domains of interest at an individual pace in a non-threatening, low-stakes environment." --- Pamela S.H. Bogart

In this e-single, Bogart, an instructor at the University of Michigan's English Language Institute, explains the ins and outs of MOOCs, particularly (but not exclusively) those that can support language learning. She explains the various types of MOOCs and their pedagogical benefits and shows how MOOCs can aid in the language learning process and offer students a more richly textured blended learning experience. The text concludes with tips for creating and designing a MOOC. 

Essentially, this short ebook answers many of the questions today's teachers might have about, not only whether to use MOOCs in the classroom, but whether they should create one. The book seeks to provide answers to:

*What is a MOOC?
*How can my students best use MOOCs?
*What if I am asked to or decide to create a MOOC?

Each section includes an Exploration Task that invites readers to deepen their personal understanding of and experience with MOOCs.
