Don’t miss a thing – Register Now!


We’re really proud of our courses, especially the variety and volume of amazing resources we’ve curated for you, but we know that it can be a little daunting when you first sign up and sign in. We want to remind you thatMOOC-Eds are designed for you to get what you need, so don’t feel pressured to do everything! 

Watch the video below (or click here) to hear from a past participant why she appreciated that MOOC-Eds are designed in a way that allows “life” to happen.


Learning Differences

Help your students meet their individual learning needs

All of us, children and adults alike, have different strengths and weaknesses in our learning. In order to help you change the way your students learn, the Learning Differences course will expand your knowledge related to learning differences, provide actionable strategies to impact the learning experience of your students, and cultivate a growth mindset related to learning differences.

Certificates and Micro-credentials

All participants who complete MOOC-Ed courses are eligible to receive a Certificate of Completion of professional development from NC State University*. States and districts throughout the country have applied MOOC-Ed participation toward local CEU requirements in a variety of content areas.

*Participating North Carolina educators are eligible to receive a Certificate of Renewal Credit
The Friday Institute is deeply involved in bringing competency-based approaches into educator preparation, credentialing and professional development, and have designed a series of micro-credentials for teachers, coaches, and administrators who participate in our Learning Differences and Statistics courses. These micro-credentials support and extend the learning opportunities offered in the MOOC-Eds.

MOOC-Ed is a project of the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation.
