Open ABE Service-MOOC Update


Course-ExtendedReminder: One more month!

As we head into June today, we have one more month left in our #openabe service-MOOC course extension. For those who have recently enrolled, our original course end date was May 15th, but we worked with Canvas Network to extend the course to July 1st to accommodate those who requested more time to finish their lessons. Some of the facilitators and SMEs wrapped up their volunteer services on May 15th, but there is fantastic peer-to-peer support happening in the discussion boards and during the formative evaluation. I thank everyone for paying it forward by helping out those who continue to work on their lessons. With a month left, you have plenty of support and encouragement to design on!!


Looking ahead … second implementation in September!

Over 1,850 people have enrolled in this course. This level of interest far surpassed our wildest estimates. I can now confirm Designers for Learning will offer a second implementation of this course on the Canvas Network from September 12th – December 4th, 2016. We will spend the summer evaluating this course and making adjustments based on student feedback in the course surveys. Enrollment for the next course will begin August 8th, so please add your name to our contact database to receive future updates with details about how you can enroll and / or help us to spread the word to others!
