Joint UNESCO-Commonwealth of Learning meeting to launch Guide on MOOCS

Joint UNESCO-Commonwealth of Learning meeting to launch Guide on MOOCS

The meeting is organized by UNESCO’s Education Sector and the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) to officially launch their latest publication: "Making Sense of MOOCs: A Guide for Policy Makers in Developing Countries".

The Guide is designed to raise general awareness amongst policy makers in developing countries as to how Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) might address their concerns and priorities, particularly in terms of access to affordable quality higher education and preparation of secondary school leavers for academic as well as vocational education and training. With very few exceptions, many of the reports on MOOCs already published do not refer to the interest and experience of developing countries, although we are witnessing important initiatives in more and more countries around the world.

This meeting will be held in English and French with a simultaneous interpretation in all languages.
