Chronicle of Higher Education Blog Highlights Key Points from MOOCs and Libraries Event
The "MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?" event, hosted by OCLC Research and the University of Pennsylvania on 18-19 March, featured thoughtful and provocative presentations about ways libraries are getting involved with massive open online courses (MOOCs), including the challenges and strategic opportunities they are facing.
The Chronicle of Higher Education blog post, "For Libraries, MOOCs Bring Uncertainty and Opportunity," by Jennifer Howard on 25 March 2013, summarizes the key points made during the event, including the various roles academic librarians can play in the MOOCs phenomenon and how they can best prepare for them.
OCLC Research will post the video and presenters' slides from the MOOCs and Libraries event online in the coming days.
