In a previous post, we explained what MOOCs are and what makes them unique compared to other forms of higher education. In this post, we’re going to talk about how you can actually use MOOCs to expand your education and training. Whether you are interested in simply gaining new knowledge, learning a new skill or further developing your professional abilities, MOOCs offer an accessible (open online courses) and affordable (usually free) way to accomplish this.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so, you’ve probably heard of a little thing called MOOCs. In order to explain what MOOCs are, the most logical place to start is to decipher this odd, bovine-sounding acronym. Quite simply, MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course.
Greetings from Manang! So far the race is going great. We have finished through stage 7 and are on our rest day now. The team is certainly tired, but we are in a great position to attack these last few stages. Aayman Tamang, one of our Nepali riders, has finished on the podium in several stages and is sitting in third place overall. He has a great shot at the overall podium and we will be working hard to keep him in that position.
According to NCU faculty member Dr. Pamela Carter, big data, cloud computing, social media, smart machines, and mobile computing are the five big technology trends of the moment.
“The impact of just these five trends is overwhelming,” notes Dr. Carter. “Businesses now really have to focus on how to leverage these technologies.”
