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.
