We’re pleased to announce an exciting — and experimental! — summer project. Here’s the gist: for the next ten weeks, we’re going to run sessions for three of our best courses — with the possibility of getting real, portable college credit (yeah, with caveats*). We’d call it a MOOC, but that’s soooo 2012, don’t you think? So we’re going with Saylor Summer School…but you can call it what you like.
We start Monday, June 17th, but you can hop on later, too. Now…how does it work?
We’ll send you an email with the week’s assignments and discussion prompts. You’ll work through the course on your own, but at the same time as everyone else who signs up — and you’ll be able to interact with your fellow learners, Saylor Foundation staff, and three of our professors in our Forums, on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and even in a few live Hangouts.
Intrigued? You can learn more about each of the courses we’re running for the summer session — or sign up right now — at the Saylor Summer School homepage.
One thought on “Saylor Summer School 2013: 10 Weeks, 9 Credits, No Excuses.”
What a brilliant idea. I wish I’d thought of it! I hope this is widely publicised outside Saylor as it should be an excellent draw for new students.
