This session will focus on the data provided to us from Coursera, Penn State’s Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) partner, and how we are using these data at Penn State. Bart Pursel will provide an introduction and context for the session. Anthony Robinson will discuss how he is using data from his MOOC for both research and to drive enrollments in online EMS programs. Kim Marchek will talk about how Outreach is leveraging the MOOC data, along with potential plans for future use.
