Educators and instructional designers had the chance to learn about incorporating group work into their classes this past summer when S&T launched its first massive open online course (MOOC) in July.

The fast-paced course is an on-demand, non-credit professional development resource. It was initially offered at no cost to allow campus officials to study the process, mechanisms and benefits of MOOCs at Missouri S&T.

“There is great potential to use this venue as a pipeline to feed the distance certificate and degree programs as well as the continuing education trainings offered through S&T Global,” says Angie Hammons, manager of educational technology at Missouri S&T.
