"The ability to use established and emerging technology tools is not optional for learning and career advancement in today’s digital age. It is a necessity. Many people, both in and out of higher education, fall short in this respect. This proposal is to create a MOOC that will build on participants’ abilities to understand and use web-based technology tools, regardless of their current skill level or their personal and professional trajectories.
This MOOC will provide accessible, curated information and application exercises pertaining to current and emerging technologies such as audio, video, and social networking that are relevant to learners and professionals alike. Additionally, it will provide space for supportive dialogue and sharing among participants.
Content will be an open-access resource with ongoing utility for the lifelong learning needs, interests, and career advancement for people across the globe who are invested in their personal and professional growth."
