UPEI offers MOOC on university experience

April 25, 2013

The University of Prince Edward Island has launched a Facebook-delivered massive open online course (MOOC) for hopeful new students, supportive parents, high school teachers, and anyone who is eager to engage and connect with some of the key concepts that make the university experience unique. Organized by current UPEI students, Experience U (XPU) gives an overview of university, offers a context for the preparations and decisions students need to make, and provides a fun and engaging way to share questions about university. Every week the 5-week course will introduce guest lectures, videos, live Q&A sessions, and some assignments. As course participants, students will get a window into the UPEI experience and get a handle on some of the "ins and outs" of succeeding at the next level. The student organizers will put together discussions based on participant questions and answers to build a survival guide to starting university. UPEI News | XPU
