Upcoming NovoED Courses

novoed part 2
NovoED is the social online learning environment.  They are structured around a “Learn, collaborate and innovate” system in which you are organized into groups with whom you work on projects for the run of the course.  By doing this, you network with a group of individuals and you actually have a chance to get to know them.  So they offer all of the typical benefits of a regular MOOC with the added benefit of teamwork, problem solving, creativity and networking!

 

Some upcoming courses include:
