Description

This past year San Jose State University (SJSU) has emerged as a cutting-edge leader of open education, delivering massive open online courses (MOOCs) in partnership with Udacity, a major MOOC platform. While debates continue over the proper pedagogical place and effectiveness of MOOCs in higher education, students already find themselves in need of information literacy support for these courses.

To support these students, SJSU’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library recently identified a number of previously created online information literacy modules that could easily be adapted for MOOCs. The online modules were originally only accessible via SJSU’s campus learning management system (LMS); however, student feedback combined with the desire to share content beyond the user-restrictive LMS inspired a team of librarians to identify open alternatives.

Together with presenters, session participants will actively explore the ways and tools of taking online learning content beyond the walls of academia and into the inclusive world of open access.
