Wake Tech Community College to Offer Developmental Math MOOC
Wake Tech is one of the first community colleges in the nation to jump on the massive open online course (MOOC) band wagon. The Raleigh, N. C. community college will begin offering a course in developmental math in the 2013 spring semester.
The content will be developed in-house by a team of Wake Tech instructors, videographers, and computer technicians. Because the course will be offered without an instructor students will be able to tackle the modular formatted pre-algebra and beginning algebra curriculum at their own pace, they will also be able to monitor their progress through directed self-assessments.
Additionally, the school plans on developing its own hosting platform, which it will allow other community colleges to use for a nominal fee.
