What is a MOOC? #jiscwebinar

This Wednesday (12-1pm BST) I'll be taking part with Lou McGill , David KernohanMartin Weller and Dave White in a free JISC webinar talking Moocs (Massive Online Open Courses)My role will be to talk about phonar and picbod from an instructor's perspective - although neither class are strictly Moocs, hopefully there'll be things enough to share that may prove useful for anyone interested in creating and running an online class (and not just limited to photography).

It's free but you need to sign up and test the software (unlike phonar and picbod this webinar will be running on one of those proprietary software platforms favoured by edu-institutions. We can discuss whether they're appropriate for environments for MOOCs only if you sign up, install, test...... :)
