Announcing new MOOC

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

We are pleased to announce that Understanding Language has received a seed grant to develop a Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC, though Stanford’s office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning. MOOCs are designed to bring university courses to a wide audience, as described last fall by the New York Times. Much work remains to be done, but we expect the course to serve as an introduction to language for teachers and other school professionals, with further courses to follow if the first one is successful. Stay tuned for an announcement when the course launches.
