Course Description:

This educational planning workshop will allow international distance learners to successfully integrate into the American virtual environment by learning about educational technologies, American culture and educational system, expected skills and behaviors, and developing necessary competencies, including academic writing, communication, time management, teamwork, cross-cultural and e-learning skills. The workshop is designed to complement cross-cultural and e-learning skills. The workshop is designed to complement "iMOOC101: Mastering American eLearning", a massively open online course (iMOOC) freely available for all on Coursera
(https://www.coursera.org/course/imooc), and will provide an opportunity to individualize and finalize the above course by working individually (or in a small group) with an American university professor. During the workshop, students will submit written assignments based on the iMOOC's readings and self-assessments, discuss those with the professor and peers, and receive formative feedback. Students who successfully complete the workshop will obtain U.S. university credit from the State University of New York's Empire State College. In addition to finalizing the iMOOC experience, the workshop participants will learn how to make efficient use of the vast electronic information resources, online databases and other information technology and academic services provided by the College. They may further individualize investigations that support transferring credits from their home institution abroad towards obtaining an American degree; in particular, they can design an individualized degree plan.

Note: this course is only open to students who are enrolled or have previously taken "iMOOC101: Mastering American eLearning" (https://www.coursera.org/course/imooc).
