What is a MOOC Camp?
MOOC camps offer participants the opportunity to engage with other participants through facilitated, in-person or online face-to-face discussions around massive open online courses (MOOCs). MOOCs sponsored by the Department of State (DOS) are free and open to anyone who wishes to participate.
Would you like to facilitate a MOOC Camp?
Anyone who is familiar with the course materials and can volunteer their time to lead a MOOC Camp. MOOC camps may be led by OPEN course alumni, English language educators in your region, alumni of U.S. government exchange programs, and U.S. embassy staff, among others. Please see some great resources and guidance for conducting a MOOC camp here on the American English Website: https://americanenglish.state.gov/OPEN-MOOCs. Please complete the MOOC Camp Facilitators Request form to identify your project, project location, and request materials.
Where do MOOC Camps Take Place?
Past MOOC camps have been hosted at U.S. Embassies, Consulates, American Spaces, regional schools and universities, and other public spaces around the world. Please let your Regional English Language Officer know if you would like to participate in or facilitate a MOOC camp in your region. You can find their contact information here: https://americanenglish.state.gov/support-near-you-regional-english-language-officer-relo.
