Are you interested in the experience of learning via a MOOC?

Two sections are available

#9731 meets on Tuesdays from 8:45-10:45

#9732 meets on Wednesdays from 9:20-11:20

But these are hybrid courses, and because you will be participating online via the MOOC, there will only be 3-5 in-person class sessions during the semester.

The MOOC facilitators are:

Work with Empire State College students! Students from around the world!

If this is a MOOC, will I need to come to class?

Yes, sometimes!

Will the only other students be from UAlbany?

No, it is very exciting that your fellow students may be anywhere in the world.
