I learned a new acronym this week:  MOOC.  A MOOC is a Massive Open Online Class.  I received  a notice through the Sloan-C listserv about eduMOOC, “a Massive Open Online Class (MOOC) on ‘Online Learning Today…and Tomorrow'” sponsored by The Center for Online Learning, Research and Service at the University of Illinois Springfield.  I’ve registered for eduMOOC, which “will begin June 27, 2011 and run for eight weeks. It is totally open, free, and collaborative. It can be totally asynchronous, or those attending can join in weekly panel discussions with experts in various aspects of the topic.”
