Directory of MOOC providers

There's a growing interest in MOOCs among many of the people I encounter these days – some simply fascinated by their novelty value  and others genuinely interested in trying out one of the courses on offer. 

The big providers like Coursera and EdX get lots of publicity in this regard, but it's interesting to note the increasing number of providers emerging from across all areas of the education sector now moving into the MOOC space. 

So today I was interested to see a tweet out about a new MOOC provider directory that lists a whole range of providers at different levels of the education system. It's a bit easier to find what you're looking for here than on other sites like the MOOC List, for instance, but for anyone wanting to explore the scope of the MOOC scene it provides some useful links. 

The list of school-level MOOCs is of particular interest to me, particularly the link to the Coursera Professional Development options for teachers. 

Certanly worth bookmarking for a browse when you have the time 😉

  1. Don't forget the Kiwi based mOOCs. The recent Scenario Planning for Educators offered in collaboration with the University of Canterbury and an upcoming PD development opportunity for teachers and lecturers on Open Educational Resources and Creative Commons. The OCL4Ed mOOC starts on 4 September currently with regitrations from +50 countries. Would be great to see more registrations from New Zealand based educators 🙂
