The 4th meeting of the SIG on SwissMOOCs has been postponed to August 26th, 2015. The meeting will take place at USI Lugano and will focus on the integration of MOOCs into in-class teaching.
Despite MOOCs seem to be originally designed as standalone courses, their introduction into the higher education landscape has expanded the possibilities of course design. We will discuss how MOOCs can be integrated into the curriculum, which are the best practices and which issues and challenges have to be considered.
Anyone who wish to contribute to the discussion presenting his/her experience on this topic is kindly invited to contact the SIG leader, Elisabetta Decarli-Frick.
