2013 Open Access Textbooks and MOOCs
In the last year, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have captivated the public's attention and enrolled millions of students. What texts are professors using for such courses? Must they be open access, or even digital? What presses have benefited from getting on a reading list, whether mandatory or suggested? Panelists will discuss how university presses can work with MOOC providers and professors, and assess the present and future paths of online learning.
