Until very recently, none of us were really sure quite what a ‘MOOC’ – a Massive Open Online Course – was. But this was all set to change when the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh was given the go-ahead to produce its very own MOOC, and we were the lucky folks chosen to be on the MOOC team! (Find out who ‘we’ are here)
So what is a MOOC, and how will we make one? We won’t attempt to answer these questions right now, as they are ones that we will be finding out the answers to along the way. This blog will document our journey from the very beginning to what will hopefully be the successful creation and running of our own MOOC, and beyond! We hope you’re as excited as we are!
