Dino 101

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Tomorrow marks the launch of Dino 101, a MOOC offered by the University of Alberta. I would think this course would be interesting to students, and especially younger students, the world over (because you can't go wrong with dinosaurs, right?). Jennifer Chesney provided me with some background on the course - "The UAlberta Digital Learning site sets the broader context of the UofA's place in the history of using technology to "uplift the whole people" (our promise statement) and lets people know about what we are doing beyond just the MOOC... the Coursera - UAlberta partnership news item here... Udacity posted a very nice post today... We have also built a Dino 101 hub that serves to help us improve Google PageRank in organic search results and gives us one place to collate and curate all the dinosaur-related news and research discoveries."
