ASTD Presentation: Google's Experiments with MOOCs

I'm excited to present at ASTD's International Conference in Dallas, TX tomorrow.

Here's a brief outline of what we'll discuss:

  • Google's interest in MOOCs
  • How we got started
  • What we've done (Power Searching with Google, Advanced Power Searching with Google)
  • Experiments we've conducted
    • Can you create a MOOC using Google tools? 
    • Are linear paths or non-linear challenge formats more effective? 
    • How well does self-grading work for student assessments? 
    • Text lessons vs. video lessons: which are more popular? Effective? 
    • Can we replicate student community via online tools? 
  • Lessons learned as an instructional designer working on MOOCs
  • How you can contribute
  • Moving beyond MOOCs
We hope to see you there!
