MOOCs and libraries European Conference

Last month I mentioned the MOOCS and libraries conference organized in March by OCLC Research.

Next month, July 12, the UK Open University is hosting the European version of this conference in London.

More information is available at the UK OU website.

MOOCs and libraries

This month’s Library Journal has a very interesting article - Massive Open Opportunity: Supporting MOOCs in Public and Academic Libraries

The article extensively explores the opportunities that are presented by MOOCs and is well worth a read.

Much of the inspiration for the article seems to have come from an OCLC event that took place on March 18 - MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?

The videos of the talks are available at OCLC's YouTube Channel.

Below is the video of the summary and next steps discussion from the event.
