MOOC: how to design blended learning

April 8, 2014

blendkitIn blended courses (also called hybrid or mixed-mode), face-to-face instruction is partially replaced with web-based online learning. Instead of physically meeting three times a week, a blended class might get together once. EDUCAUSE and the University of Central Florida (UCF) are offering a free MOOC*, BlendKit2014 – Becoming a Blended Learning Designer, where interested folks can learn how to develop a blended course.

The 5-week course runs from April 21, 2014 through June 9 and learning activities will include reading scholarly work, following practical step-by-step guides, participating in social networks, interacting with facilitators and students, and receiving critiques of design work.

You can find details at the course home page, including links to a schedule, readings, learning activities, and course registration.
