Virtual School MOOC – Introduction to K-12 Online Learning Research (10 September-07 October 2012)
Welcome to Virtual School 2012 MOOC. This massive online open course (MOOC) provides a broad overview of the field of K-12 online learning, specifically what is currently known based on the research that has been conducted in the field. This is my first attempt at leading a MOOC and I have relied heavily upon the format used by David Wiley in his Introduction to Openness in Education (and I have noted specific instances at the bottom of each of the pages). Having said that, I like to lead a longer, more developed MOOC during Summer 2013 (possibly with the opportunity for university credit). The main goal of this course is to give you a broad grounding in the research related to the field of K-12 online learning.
