How to MOOC Your Human Services | Fei Tang



Talk description: The use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as a new service delivery tool, thanks to their far-reaching capability, community-building capacity, and superior cost-efficiency, provides seemingly endless possibilities for non-profit visionaries to innovate their human services. But is a MOOC a suitable tool for your organization and your particular project? And how do you MOOC a human service? Fei Tang, the self-proclaimed “Social MOOC Pioneer”, will walk you through her journey of using MOOCs to advance social causes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fM3zeUmOsXs
