Here we go. Blackboard AND MOOC’s! I know a certain boy who’s heart is a flutter (Jordan Epp, Instructional Designer at University of Saskatchewan)
“…Blackboard thinks colleges are offering MOOCs for three reasons.
First, they want to provide educational material to a broad audience that otherwise would not come to campus.
Second, Blot said colleges want to experiment with new forms of online teaching…
Third, colleges want to showcase star professors and give a “free taste” to the public in an attempt to lure would-be students.”
