How could a single, low budget university course on the mundane topic of learning explode into the world’s largest, most popular massive open online course, with millions of learners worldwide? Coursera’s MOOC “Learning How to Learn” provides a framework for this morning’s animated conversation (yes, literally—there are animations) between Coursera CEO Jeff Maggioncalda and course creator and instructor Barbara Oakley. They’ll provide fresh perspectives on people’s deepest needs in learning and a scientific understanding of how humans can accelerate the process of learning.
Participants: Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO, Coursera
Barbara Oakley, Professor of Engineering, Oakland University
