This week's Featured Online Resource is a recording of a webinar held July 11th, on the topic of MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses.
The web is all abuzz lately on the topic of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Classes), with the introduction of edX, a joint partnership between Harvard and MIT, that will offer free online classes.
