Book DescriptionMOOCs or massive open online courses that can be attended by hundreds of thousands of students at the same time have become wildly popular in recent years, and have begun to gain traction with libraries as well. There are many potential roles for libraries in MOOCs including: development, support, assessment, modeling, teaching, and preservation. In MOOCs and Libraries, learn how you can utilize MOOCs for staff training, bibliographic instruction, supporting faculty curriculum, and more! Readers of this start-to-finish guide to MOOC's in libraries will learn all about MOOC creation, from early stage planning, pedagogy, and equipment selection, to filming and launch, including: *How to Choose Hardware and Software for Your MOOC *Planning your first MOOC project *Planning for a Library MOOC Video Project *How to Develop MOOC Scripts *Storyboarding *Choosing a MOOC Filming Location *How to create MOOCs for bibliographic instruction *How to create MOOCs for staff training *How to create video lectures and screencasts
Editorial ReviewOverall, Courtney does a very nice job of breaking down a complicated and new idea and putting it in realistic and achievable terms for those interested in creating, teaching, or supporting a MOOC. Not only does he take the time to fully introduce and provide examples of the different types of courses available, he also gives specific suggestions on what equipment to use. The course examples and discussions are put in realistic and relatable terms so the individual creating the MOOC has a solid basis on which to build his or her own course. With all of the changes happening in legal education, this book is a great tool for librarians to use to come up with different ways to support and educate both the faculty and students in a new type of learning. * Law Library Journal * I enthusiastically recommend the Library Technology Essentials series. Many libraries will want to invest in the entire set as a professional development resource since they will inevitably face some degree of involvement with each of the volume topics. Library technologists will want one of these books at their side as they launch new projects or initiatives. Ellyssa Kroski has shepherded a collection that makes an important contribution to the professional practice of library technology. -- Marshall Breeding, Independent Consultant, Speaker, and Author; editor Library Technology Guide editor, Computers in Libraries columnist, and Smart Libraries Newsletter editor
