Michael K. Barbour,
The latest information from K-12 Blended & Online Learning by University System of Georgia on Coursera.
Dear Michael K. Barbour,Thank you for your engagement in our first MOOC. K12 Blended and Online Learning was a smashing success with over 10,000 enrollees from 160 different countries! While we are now closing your access to this Cousera session, we are delighted to offer you access to all course materials including the videos at our new OER located at http://bagwell.kennesaw.edu/k12blended. Some of you may notice that we have linked to the module you developed in Week 7. Please keep those links hot! You can also continue to engage via our twitter hashtag #KSUitecMOOC and share with us new modules you create.
Starting on January 13th we will launch session 2 of this course. To enroll in this new session visit https://www.coursera.org/course/k12blendedlearning. Please share this message with any teacher or parent interested in K12 blended and online learning. Once again, some states in the USA will offer teachers free professional learning credits for completing the course, including Georgia and Texas. Please check the course page for a current listing. For teachers in other states, last week at the ConnectEd conference, USA President Obama announced free CEUs for teachers through MOOC platforms including Coursera. Exactly how we will execute this process is still unknown at this moment; however, visit White House website for the announcement and visit Coursera’s blog for updates and sign yourself up using the links on how to get CEUs. On the application, note that you heard about this opportunity from Kennesaw State.
Also, many participants earned KSU graduate credit for their participation in session 1 and have continued their learning at KSU. We have enjoyed getting to know these individuals and look forward to being able to offer the same opportunity to session 2 participants. If you earned a Statement of Accomplishment and still want KSU university credit credit towards one of our four eligible online certificate, endorsement, or degree programs, you have until December 31, 2014 to complete the process at http://mooc.kennesaw.edu/credit/. After this deadline, only the 2015 session 2 course completion materials and certificates will be considered for credit.Also, keep your eyes open for KSU’s new MOOC by Dr. Humayan Zafar called CyberSecurity. Once again, the instructional videos are exceptional! You won’t want to miss it.
