Reminder: Final Week #OpenABE Service-MOOC


Final week of #OpenABE Service-MOOC!

As we head into the final week of the extension for our #openabe service-MOOC, I want to thank the designers, facilitators, and 2,000+ participants who joined us in this course. Since we will be shifting our attention to preparing for our next course on Canvas Network (see below), we ask participants to submit their lesson deliverables by July 1st in order to receive a badge and certificate for the course. We have a fantastic roster of resources within OER Commons, and I hope we can finish strong this final week by adding your lesson, as well. While the course will officially end this week from a facilitation standpoint, the course materials will remain available after July 1st for those who want to review them over the summer.

Final Week


Want more? Join us in September!

If you missed the chance to participate or didn’t have enough time to finish the course, Designers for Learning will offer a second implementation of this #openabe service-MOOC from September 12th – December 4th, 2016. We will spend the summer evaluating this course and making adjustments based on participant feedback. Enrollment for the next course will begin August 8th.
