The University of Iowa and its International Writing Progrm launched his Distance Learning MOOC-Packs, the core content of the MOOCs of the last three years.
These MOOCs have a model of active learning meant for participants to practice writing, so this initiative is welcome.
«In order to support access to education for all, every time we create a MOOC, we also create a MOOC-Pack. A MOOC-Pack provides a MOOC’s core content, packaged with a how-to guide and extra instructional materials. Using a MOOC-Pack, anyone can lead a writing class or a study group.»
