Discussion of Project Ideas: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

Monday, December 2, 2013 / 12-1pm
1 Silber Way, 8th Floor, Provost Conference Room


We solicit proposals for the next set of MOOCs that BU will develop for the edX platform. We are interested in identifying high quality courses that showcase the best that BU has to offer, have the potential to attract large numbers of participants and will make a mark in their respective subject areas. In your proposal please articulate why you think that your proposed course meets the above desiderata and what are the most closely related MOOCs that are currently available. Also specify when you will be available for MOOC production. Faculty selected from the DEI to produce MOOCs will receive a stipend that covers teaching releases for the semester(s) of production and funds for hiring teaching assistants and other support staff.
