Please join us at ALA Annual in San Francisco for:
“To the MOOC and Beyond! Adventures in Online Learning, Copyright, and Massive Open Online Courses,” Sunday, June 28th, 3-4 pm in MCC West, Room 2014.
As online learning proliferates, universities expect libraries to be more involved in licensing and copyright support. From Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to distance learning, continuing studies, to flipped and blended courses, content selection that engages students and supports instruction is key. However, content can have rights restrictions that limit use in open environments. Come to hear about some general trends and statistics and to Learn from librarians in the trenches about the challenges and opportunities of online learning support.
This event is sponsored by the ALCTS CRS Education, Research, and Publication Coordinating Committee and co-sponsored by the ALCTS Publisher Library Vendor Relations and the ACRL Distance Learning Section.
