This week we were required to teach the rest of the class something about cheating or academic integrity in the classroom, or teach the class about a MOOC. Since I deal with graduate level theology students, I do not worry too much about cheating. I don’t mean by that they these students are so sterling that they would never do this, but only that if a seminary student would cheat on a test or a quiz, they have already failed in their ministry.
I am interested in the MOOC concept, so I created a Jing to give some basic information. This JING also gives some hints on succeeding as a MOOC student, should the desire ever become overwhelming. It also includes a link to a MOOC currently being offered – you can check it out at http://change.mooc.ca/. As of this writing, the MOOC is already four weeks old, so it’s too late to get thoroughly involved, but it was an interesting introduction.
