Massive Open Online Courses

feature-elearningWe are very pleased to let colleagues know that the MOOC course pages for three of HKU’s MOOCs will soon be launched. The course pages give potential students information about the course content, pre-requisites, expected workload etc. If you’ve not yet had a look at a MOOC course page try visiting one of the most well-known MOOCs, “Justice” by Harvard’s Professor Sandel.

On another note, the EPSU is planning a lunchtime seminar to update colleagues on what is happening with HKU’s MOOCs. Colleagues will have the chance to find out about the course content, the development processes and the challenges and opportunities presented by MOOCs. Details of the seminar will be released shortly.

New EPSU Staff

The EPSU team will grow next when we are joined by a new instructional designer, Jingli Cheng. Jingli has come from Stanford University and has extensive instructional design experience. He will be working with us on the MOOCs whilst also integrating in to existing EPSU projects.
