If you're unable to attend this event in person, view it live on the web or watch the recording on YouTube at a later time.

Join OCLC Research and the University of Pennsylvania Libraries in person at the Hall of Flags, Perelman Quadrangle and also live on the web for thoughtful and provocative presentations about how libraries are already getting involved with MOOCs. Whether your institution is already on board or on the fence, you’ll learn from the pioneers how library content and services can be represented in these new learning environments, and about opportunities for new discussions with partners in supporting learning on campus.

If you plan to view the free event online, we encourage you to register to view the live webcast. Registration is free and optional, but it allows us to contact you if there should be any technical issues with the webcast.
