6. Massive Open Online Courses - campus support ? ITS
One possible topic we could discuss is the MOOC (MOOC.) Massive open online course. I recently took a course from coursera about social network analysis. It is a great experience for me and I wonder if any SDSU faculty members might be interested in creating MOOC? Just my two cents. from Coursera

Peter Herman's note is a timely reminder of ongoing discussions about MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) nationally, and indeed in many developed and developing countries.
We are pleased to announce that CTL and ITS will be hosting a lunch presentation on MOOCS this spring by Dr. Amy Collier for SDSU faculty interested in the implications of this approach.  For more about Dr. Collier, Director of Stanford University's Center for Teaching and Learning, see
CTL's schedule and registration system for spring lunches will be available soon.  In the meantime, please save the date if you are interested.

Re: Information Item
CFA Report:
Udacity, San Jose State to partner for online education pilot program CSU Chancellor Timothy White joined Gov. Jerry Brown, the San Jose State campus president and Sebastian Thrun, the head of an online education company, to announce a pilot online teaching project at a news conference on January 15. Three courses (six online course sections) will be offered to 50 matriculated San Jose State students and 50 community college and high school students. The curriculum and teaching is being prepared by San Jose State faculty working together with Udacity, a new company offering free, very large online courses commonly known as MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses). This experimental project is designed, in part, to see if the drop-out and failure rates (as high as 90%) in so many online courses can be improved. ... just the start of the article"\
