Session Description

The Carlson School of Management embarked on a journey to launch two Coursera Specializations starting in January/February 2016: one in Human Resource Management and another on the Healthcare Marketplace. The Coursera specializations consist of a suite of 5 courses, with the concluding course being a capstone experience. The project schedule resulted in 2 new MOOC courses launching every month, with 2 new faculty every month, for a total 10 MOOC courses and 10 different faculty in about 6 months. The accelerated nature of the project timeline required close coordination among multiple moving elements. The presenters will share the process of working to create and highlight faculty content expertise: all the way from designing lecture presentations with ‘pop’ to creating lecture videos that ‘stick.’ The lead presenter will share lessons learned and overall project management considerations for embarking on a MOOC odyssey at your own institution.
