HKU hosted an edX training day for HKU MOOC teachers as well as members from other edX Asian partner institutions on November 15, 2013 at the Learning Commons of our Centennial Campus.

After a brief introduction to the training day by Johannes Heinlein, edX’s senior director of strategic partnerships, programme manager David Porter gave a presentation on the basic operation of a typical edX course, good MOOC teaching practices, and what enhancement work the edX team had been working on. Participants were also given useful advice on how to engage a global audience and author assessment tasks appropriate for massive enrollments.
