SF Edtech Meetup: Making MOOCs Matter

San Francisco, CA - Jul 31 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Free


So much of the conversation (and some of the inflated expectations) around MOOCs are focused on completion rates, certifications and whether they matter in the job market.

But these are just a small sample of metrics that are important. This event will look at other data and insights that will help us appreciate the potential of MOOCs from different perspectives.

What have we learned about the demographics of online students? What do online course marketplaces tell us the skills that people want? How can we create a more engaging, compelling learning experience for students?

Special thanks to our EdSurgent Tier sponsors Edmodo, Pearson and Vocareum! And kudos to Orrick for providing the fine space and refreshment!

Presenting at this Meetup will be:

  • Chuong Do (Coursera)
  • Shannon Hughes (Udemy)
  • Vishal Kapoor (Vocareum)
