Wallace State Community College Launches MOOC
Wallace State Community College's Hanceville, Ala. campus is now offering a Massive Open Online Course to teach conversational Spanish. The new class is the first MOOC to be offered by Wallace State.
The school will be offering the course as a pass/fail class, which means that students taking the class will be ineligible to receive college credit from Wallace State. Students who pass the course are eligible to receive a certificate of completion.
During the eight-week course, students will be exposed to practical Spanish—such as social etiquette, greetings and introduction, common phrases and questions, numbers, colors, days and times, order in restaurants, and how to complete personal data for business forms.
Wallace State hopes to have 100,000 students enroll in the course.
